Memories Are Stitched With Love

Today I am 'guest designing' at Crafting by Designs.
The theme for the March Challenge is 'anything goes'....
pretty easy for me!

I hadn't a clue of what I was going to create and
then it just so happened I opened my mailbox
and my 'All Stitched Up' die was there from Spellbinders.
Perfect timing!

I wanted my card to have a bit of a soft, vintage look
with the dress form die.
It was cut from the prettiest pastel paper by Papermania called
'French Lavender"

All the other pieces you see, buttons, spool of thread and scissors were
cut from snippets in my scrap bag.

I stamped my sentiment using SU Perfect Plum.

Here is the inside.

Thank you Crafting by Designs for having me as a guest designer.

Wow Diane, this is absolute perfection! LOVE how the die cuts go so well together and the sentiment is fabulous! A really super card.

And, I posted off your two stamps yesterday so they should be with you before too long. Too funny really, I'd been to the dentist for work on a back tooth and stood there in the Post Office looking like a grinning Muppet - hoping the lady wouldn't ask for too much information in case I dribbled all down my front!!
