You're A Stitch!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  It's week 35 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC35! 

I'm sure it's no surprise when I tell you that this card was so fun to make!  I pulled out Sew Nifty from My Favorite Things and got to work!  I started by stamping the dress form in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Fossil Cardstock.  I then paper pieced it with one of the patterns I used on the rest of my card, which is all from Lost and Found 2/Breeze from My Minds Eye.

The layered flower was created with the Pretty Posies Die-Namics (one of my favorites!) and I added a Maya Road wood button in the center tied with some twine.  I added a little border under the focal panel with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics, and the sentiment, "You're A Stitch" was stamped onto a panel that I cut out with the File Tab Die-Namics.  I used some crocheted lace for the two diagonal panels and added tons of machine stitching.

The inside is uber layered and sewn, and I added a panel with another sentiment from Sew Nifty, "May your bobbin always be full", which I love!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
