Thank you 'sew' much......

I have a sewing machine, but it's gathering dust in the cupboard under the stairs. I used to make my own clothes many moons ago- I even made all of my maternity dresses when I was expecting No1 son. I've also made curtains, cushions etc, but now the poor old machine is lying neglected and lonely in the dark!
I love this little sewing machine although it isn't the one that goes with the sentiment (I used a different cart for the machine) The papers are freebies - Nitwits I think from Creative Cardmaking mag- and the machine was cut from silver cardstock and Papermania shimmer cardstock. The machine was adhered to an embossed scalloped circle which, in turn, was adhered over a cotton lace border trimmed with white satin ribbon and a satin rose. I cut three small scalloped circles and adhered a button- two polka dot and one plain- to each of the scalloped circles. I threaded some embroidery thread through the buttonholes before I stuck them onto the circles- buttons always look better with the holes filled in! The scalloped circles were adhered with foam pads along the edge of the central panel. The sentiment was cut from white shimmer cardstock shadowed with blue, then adhered with foam pads. Three teeny pearls on the sewing machine completes the card.
Carts used:
Sewing machine- Nifty Fifties
Sentiment- Everyday Pop-Up cards
Scalloped circles-Winter Woodland
Plain circles- George
Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!
