Wishing You a Lovely Day!

It's Monday and you know what that means? It's time for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge! While I'm on vacation, you can dream away with this gorgeous inspiration photo chosen by our hostess, Danielle! Her theme this week is Mix and Match! Please use this inspiration photo and THREE Patterned Papers on your card or project! You can even make your own patterned paper if you like! Our new sponsor this week is Chi-Chi Memories! I hope you'll join us! Here's my card...

I decided to make this sewing-themed card using several October Afternoon coordinating papers. There's the floral doily paper in the background, the aqua gingham behind the dress form and my sentiment and a coral polka dot that I stamped my sewing machine on and cut it out. I used a MME sewing machine stamp, my PTI dress form stamp and the matching die to the dress form.

As for embellies...this chipboard hanger my Maya Road was inked with Chestnut Roan ColorBox ink and I wanted my sentiment to look like fabric draping over it. There's some seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop all tied up in a shabby bow and a string of Mom's pearls (not really, but it sounds cute!) I finished it off with an antique bronze brad!
