A Stitch In Time

Hi Crafters,

I'm back this morning with another card that has been created using a popular theme...


I've used lots of elements and papers that I had in an old kit from Create and Craft. The little cotton reels were a bargain from the N.E.C. show a few years ago and I wrapped coordinating cotton around them and thought that these charms fitted in beautifully with the rest of the theme.
The two tags are stuck together but actually pull out of the pocket behind the central image and have a birthday sentiment stamped on them, perhaps I should have taken a photo of that too but it's too late now as this has already gone to it's owner.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
The Ribbon Girl - June Card Challenge 
Come & Get It - #220 ATG
Creative Moments - #119 ATG / Birthday
Creative Fingers - #132 ATG
Craft - Dee - Bowz - June Challenge

Bye for now,

This is just awesome. Love the reels and sewing machine, [which I found in my box of stash a few days ago while cleaning] and those tiny scissors make an amazing card. Love it.xx [aNNie]

This is a beautiful, vintage feel card. The design is fabulous. l love those wee details of the charm and the thread reels.

The tag for the sentiment is pretty on this card and fits the design so well.

I have some sewing themed cards to show soon,but mine are so plain compared to this beauty.
