All Sewn Up For The Play Date Cafe

Time for another colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe. I decided on a sewing theme this time around.
I have used Tim's Sewing Room die to cut the bodice from Memory Box paper stack and added computer generated text to the bodice, all the edges have been sponged with Distress Ink.  The card itself is again cut from Memory Box papers with a little machine stitching added for dimension.
I have added SEW to some memo pins and added behind the spool which has fibres added to co-ordinate with my bodice.
The stamped circles are from Tim's Haberdashery set of stamps and the edges have been distressed to give an aged feel. My flower has been created from the Tattered Florals die again to give that added dimension.
To complete I have added co-ordinated buttons and scissor charm.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

I love this Tracy - I think it may be my fave piece of yours! The colours are just gorgeous. Its bound to be a winner!
Allotment is good - we are just novices but things are growing. Hard work though and my wrists are killing me; too much typing, too much crafting and now too much weeding. Been absolute agony some days ...but hey its all good fun (I have a tan lol:) - I bet yours is thriving!
