Sew Lovely!

A different take on a wedding card- bought these stamps from Personal Impressions - one of which is the manequin I have used here - cause I just loved them. I have had them for a while and never inked them up - disgraceful I know lol - well I found them yesterday when I was tinkering about in my craft room and thought I'd have a go. The lady whose bridal shop I made some cards for had rung and requested some more - this gave me a kick start as I haven't been well and was just tinkering about in my crafty space tidying not really making anything.
 I tried to dress the manequin as if it was maybe going to be a brides dress - thinking now it's probably a tailors dummy as the set was all to do with sewing. Here's what I came up with . Do you like it?









I am entering this into the following challenges

  10. glad you are feeling better and able to craft again Linda, there's nothing like a tidy-up in a craft room to find forgotten gems, and this card is just exquisite, no wonder the bridal shop loves them and sells them for you, Fi x
