The Sewing Room

I was inspired to create this sewing themed card by the current challenge at A Little Bit Crafty.  I stitched and distressed the background paper and added a chipboard doily.  The dressform is a Tim Holtz diecut from grunge paper that I embossed, painted and inked.  The thread bobbin is from the same Tim Holtz cutting die.  The pin strip is from a vintage spool of dressmakers pins that I found at the Robin's Nest.  The flower in the bottom corner is made from an old pattern.  The lace and buttons are all vintage and from my grandmother's farm house in Illinois.  It seems I have plenty of sewing related items.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Pile It On - stitching
Digi Choosday - Shabby Chic
Milk Coffee Challenges - 2 or more diecuts
