Card for a sew-and-sew!

I came across a new (to me) challenge blog Italy on Sunday, that this time has the topic of 'dress form' for challenge 48. I googled 'dress form' and found a delightful blog, Mel stampz, with lots of free digis, including the ones I've used to make this card. I downloaded and played with the images, printing the dress form one twice - once on to blue patterned paper so that I could paper piece it. The beauty of digi is that you can play around with the size of the images, so the text is a much closer sample than the original.

The scissors and buttons are A touch of Jolee's sewing stickers.

It's for these challenges:

The crafty pad 75: 'paper piecing' - on the dress form
Craft your passion 10: 'technique: paper piecing'
Aly's Sunday 19: 'sewing'
The play date cafe 34: 'black and white with a bit of colour - blue'
Sweet stampin' 31: 'clean and simple' - I used digi
Divine Diva 30: 'retro photo inspiration' - I chose to depict retro sewing - this was the inspiration picture:
