Love Is the Thread That Binds This Card

 I was making this card for another challenge but did not finish in time to enter so I found some other challenges that it would fit to enter.
It fits into the challenge at CR84FN which is a color challenge to use yellow, kraft, and natural and more listed below. I used Mark's Finest Papers stamps "Sew What?" which I stamped  an image and sentiment on to yellow CS with Memento Rich Cocoa and distressed the edges and added some Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  I stamped the scissors ( vintage style) on to Kraft CS with versamark and embossed with Gold EP and then cut out. I also stamped the spool  and colored with Copics, cut it out, and wrapped in it thread...some very old thread therefore I consider it a vintage feature too.  Also added a real needle and thread it and "stitched" on some buttons. Using a Kraft card base, I arranged and attached all my features including some vintage looking lace. Added a bow to the dress form.
Edited (Oops! I hit publish before I had completed this post.)
