The Craft's Meow Preview- Sew Happy

Welcome to day three of the newest sets to be released from The Craft's Meow on the 21st!  Today's card is totally opposite from my last couple,  going from clean and simple to shabby/Vintage with this one.  This set has some great sewing images included and begged to be used with pinks and florals.

To start, I layered on Crate Papers Pretty Party papers, adding a scallop border to the top.

I then adhered a distressed doily, tied around some seam binding from The Ribbon Carousel Shop and added some double buttons threaded with twine.

I stamped the spool image in brown ink and the sewing machine in pink, cut them out and mounted them onto my card front with foam.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in brown, cut it out and adhered it straight to my card front.  Of course I had to add some pearls!

I hope you've enjoyed!  Stop by the TCM blog and leave a comment there for a chance to win this set.  As always, thank you for stopping by!
