Sewing Patterns In Pink

My card today uses some more of the yummy Hero Arts Stamps sewing-themed stamps – I did warn you that I had a soft spot for sewing-themed stamps didn’t I? So I’ve gone with a totally stitchy theme for my card with some fun sewing machine stitching and thread and button embellishments.

I’ve paper pieced the pattern on mulberry paper to give a bit of texture and pink designer paper.

The little card bobbin embellishment was made by stamping one of the Hero Arts Woodgrain stamps on card and cutting the shape out then wrapping it with thread.

Thanks for dropping in.

Have a lovely day.
