Sew Special ...

Hi there ...
I do hope you are all well ... I know that there have been snowstorms across the USA ... a cyclone in Australia ... and many other places are in a state of unrest ... so I am thinking about you all and wishing you well ... I also want to thank you all for your visits and comments ... I truly appreciate each and everyone and today I have a card to share ... I made this with you in mind ...  for the challenge at CR84FN ... this is the lovely rich colour scheme ... 



... and this is my card ...


Beautiful Tim Holtz DP ... which I also stamped on in brown and red inks using my stamps from Crafty Secrets ... 


I also stamped and fussy cut a red lace border from the same stamp set and added a cream lace border on top 


The tag was from my stash and I stitched some turquoise buttons on to blend with the red ...
That little sparkly star was an earring ... I just cut off the back and glued it down ... a TIP ... when I use earrings that are for pierced ears ... I keep the little stud that slides on behind the ear ... this can then be used for your pins ... when attach to clothes (or cards) to prevent fingers being pricked and also stops the pin coming off

Before I finish ... I would just like to say a huge Thank You to Play Date Cafe for picking This card as one of the Fab 4 this week ... I am so very honoured and grateful

Till soon ... keep safe

~ Ros ~

Hey, Ros! Congrats on being picked as a winner for last week's challenge at Play Date Cafe! And I like your 'sewing' card....very vintage looking. Appreciated the tip on saving earring backs, too. Cards always seem dangerous with a 'loose' pin hanging on there!

Hugs, Linda

Wow, Ros! This is gorgeous! I love how you did the button card. I have a button card stamp(no buttons on it) and I have been wondering how to use it. This is great, but I won't copy! I may just trigger my brain! Love all the stamping on the Tim Holtz paper. Just lovely!
