Dressmakers Corner

Seem to be stuck in the doldrums again recently and even though I have lots of new stash I  can't get motivated.  To give myself a kick up the  ********  I thought I would try and enter a few challenges and this is my card for Cardz4galz challenge which is Sew and Sew.  Oxide ink background ,stamps from Inkylicious and Indigo blu,free border stamp with Card Making magazine,tape measure and cotton card a magazine freebie. The dressmakers corner stamp is from a very old SeeDees stamp set.anyone remember them. I had forgotten I had any until I unearthed a box full of them in the back of the cupboard, never know what else is hiding in there ! I'd also like to enter
