Thanks Sew Much

It's Wednesday...and no, I haven't forgotten my MojoMonday. I'm just a little late posting my card. Sunday was the one-month anniversary of my little Snoop-dog's passing. How fast time flies! I still find her bits and bobs around the house. Sometimes I smile and sometimes I cry....more of the latter on Monday which is why I'm posting this card today. I made it for a friend who has been and still is a great help to me in dealing with my loss. Her hand-embroidery skills are beyond compare and a sewing theme seemed appropriate.

The papers are from Papermania's 6x6 pad called "Rose Garden". I used pale green CS for the card. A nod to spring. 

For embellies: washi tape, green ribbon, pink button and some twine.

The stamps came free with a magazine. It's been knocking about for awhile, unused...until now.  A touch here and there with SN markers for the sewing machine. For cutting and layering: Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Oval dies. I also added some pearls.

Loads of space inside for a message to a dear friend.

As expected, the sketch is from MojoMonday #293 and for inspiration: The Shabby Tea Room #166 "Sweet Springtime";  Whoopsidaisy Challenge "Pretty In Pink"Fashionista Challenge #15 "Vintage or Shabby"Crafting For All Seasons #52 "Think Pink"Word Art Wednesday #80 "Anything Goes - Uplifting Sentiment" and Perfect Sentiments Challenge #79 "Spring Thank You".
