stitching

Thought I was never going to finish this card, everytime I have started I have been broken off to do something else.  My current obsession of layered stamping and victorian velvet DI with the addition of a little barn door red once again. The tag is a graphic 45 and the stamp is from The girl's paperie. The little snap card at the bottom is a copy of an original one I have in my basket of old haberdashery items,they are pretty old as they are war time packs which would be second world war, I think these came from my Grandmothers.  I made this for Lets Ink It Up challenge which is Show Us Your Stitching and I think I can also put it on Secret Crafter which is stitching and Sir Stampalot which is Ladies and fashion.  Zoe just told me this would also fit the Just For Fun challenge which is Square so I,m popping it on there too.
