Now...here is my creation.  I made a vintage tag

I used Spool and Tape Single, as well as a sentiment from Sewn With Love








I also used the custom die to cut the spool and thread



 I started with a base of heavy kraft card stock (Mark's Finest Papers), matted with a soft aqua from my stash, then some pretty My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Designer Paper from the Sunshine pack.

I stamped the sentiment directly on the dp with Memento Ink.




 I stamped the image  on Gina K ivory cs with Memento ink, and then colored with Copics and cut out with the custom die.  Oh how I love these custom dies!!! 



 I then "dressed" the dress form chipboard die cut (a gift from a dear friend, cut with a THoltz die).  I used more dp from the same pack and then some wide lace from my stash for the skirt.  More lace at the neck line and some shabby seam binding dressed that up.  I sewed all my layers together with a funky stitch design, and added some Spellbinders corners at the top using the Antique Frames and Accents die set.

 
 I finished off with a crocheted flower for a hat, and a Prima wood button inside another crocheted flower I made, and then some fibers, ribbon and beads for the top.   

Several things on this card were gifted to me by a sweet friend.  I do not quite have Sabrina's gift for tags, but I sure had fun playing with this!

I hope you enjoyed my project today and were inspired in some way!

From here you will visit our talented and dear  Lori!

Blessings,
