Sew Easy to Make

 Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge this week is to make a card any shape or size other than the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I made this card using a sketch from Sweet Sunday which I flipped and used colors from CR84FN challenge.

Using a Grey Card Base, I stitched on a mat of celery CS(Bazzill)...thought that was appropriate since my theme seems to be sewing ...and purple ribbon on the side.  Added a rectangle of lavender DP (unknown) to which I stamped the dress maker form from Mark's finest Papers "Sew What" set  using Memento London Fog and paper pieced the bodice with celery CS also stamped with the grey ink. Added some lavender ribbon and green coloring to the skirt. Finished with a lavender button and green gemstone. Stamped the sentiment also from the"Sew What" set in London Fog ink.
