Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Welcome to another Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge. This week we are asking you to use metal on your project.  I just love the  stamp set  "I'm In Stitches" recently released by Mark's Finest Paper and Stamps, a Heinrich Co.  The tomato and strawberry pin cushion is so cute and reminds me of the one I have and still use. I gathered up some of my sewing items -pins, needles, threads, spool charm, and thimble charm and combined with some old papers to make this card. One of the Pattern Papers I used is an old pattern design. To assemble the card, I stamped the pin cushion with red ink  and added some green. I cut this out and covered with Matte Accents. Started with Green card base, added polka dot mat edged with pinking shears, and layered with the "Pattern". Stamped the sentiment and tape measure.  Attached the pin cushion with foam dots along with the metal charms to top. I finished with the pins and needles and thread....now all ready to sew.

Challenges:
