More dressmaking

Think I might have gone a bit overload with this card but I have enjoyed making it! The button card is another new Red Lead stamp,loving these stamps. The background is Grandmas attic from Justrite stamps. You would not believe the mess I have made in making just one card and I have it all to put away before I go to bed, it must be so nice to have a proper craftroom and be able to shut the door on it all!  Think this fits a few challenges

Our Creative Corner - Fashion & Style - mannequin/brads and buttons

Sugar Creek Hollow - Always vintage - stamping

Make My Monday - Blue & Brown

Pan Pastels - brads,buttons and bows


  1. You really have created the most wonderful background and the embellishments look great - not too much at all in my opinion! Hugs, Anne x

  5. Hi Joan, Wonderful, you have really pulled out all the stops, to make this required Colour combo, which looks so fitting with your haberdashery theme. Believe me shutting the door on the mess isn't good, for it just grows and grows to a bomb site. How do I know? Guess. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation with us at MMM. Hope to see you again. Caz
