vintage dressmaker

I wanted to make something with the fabulous vintage dressmaker embossing folder that came in a lovely parcel of goodies from my lovely sister for my birthday (yes,yet another birthday,they are coming round far too often !) Embossed it on some white card and coloured with pan pastels, its a bit big for a card so it sort of evolved into a hanging using lots of sewing theme papers and bits and bobs,the model lady is from a large Stampers anonymous stamp.just cut her out and added her as it looked a bit bare on that side. After being so uncreative lately I really enjoyed making this piece.
Found quite a few challenges I can enter it on so here goes ...
