Penny's challenge 317

This is my design card for Penny's challenge 317, where the theme is 'anything goes'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

For my A5 card I used Cute as button's pre-coloured sewing Susan image (Cute as a button are sponsoring the challenge), with a piece of Hunkydory card for the background and various elements and stickers from stash. I used my Scan n Cut to die cut around the image (too much fussy cutting to do it myself - lol!), sticking this on to a Hunkydory topper.

The eyelash ribbon is some that I've had for ages - thought it was about time to use some more of it.

  1. She is lovely Hazel. Love the old fashioned sewing machines, etc. Thanks for joining us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends! :)

  2. So glad we were able to get your card linked up over at PIP Challenges! Very happy you shared it with us!

  3. I used to do a lot of sewing, making clothes for my kids. The strangest request was when my daughter was invited to a 'Zombie Jane Austen' party: I made her a simple 18th Century type gown out of cheap sheets in the sale at Sainsbury's, and she very carefully added rents and also 'bloodstains' with cold tea!!!!!

    Your card is much more like normal sewing, Hazel, and it's ideal for any seamstress!!!

    love Mags B x
