My first card features a dress form from The Sewing Room sheet which I heat embossed in black with WOW Ebony EP and fussy cut. There's also some second generation stamping of safety pins at the bottom ... if you look hard! :) I used Memento Toffee Crunch. The sentiment is form the Birthday Words A5 sheet, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I dabbed a little Old Paper Distress Ink all over the background paper for that aged look.
I coloured the dress form and the pin cushion from the Floral Mannequins sheet with Polychromos. To finish, I added Liquid Pearls in Rose Gold and White Opal to the printed roses on the left and stitched down cream cotton lace along the right edge of the card.

I went on a manic distress-fest on my second card. First, I stamped the lace from The Sewing Room sheet along the top edge of a page from an old magazine with VersaFine Spanish Moss. Next, for the background stamping I used the Dressmaking Collage clear sheet and Tea Dye Distress Ink. Finally, I distressed the edges... good and proper ... and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped the greeting with VersaFine Vintage Sepia, did a little stitching and finished the project with a few buttons from my stash..
The dress form is from the Floral Mannequins sheet, heat embossed in black, fussy cut and adhered to the card. I dressed it with a piece of sheer green ribbon around the waist.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm still catching up on visiting and commenting. Please bear with me while I make my way through the backlog. In the meantime, here's a photo of Peanut. Not sure what she's up to... potty training perchance, or is she trying to grow herself?!

Have a Blessed Sunday, friends!
