Vintage stitch up!



Our challenge this time at CRAFTY RIBBONS was chosen by Cebelica and she is a real vintage queen so she demanded we do VINTAGE! Well she did ask nicely really lol. Now vintage is not my forte so wasn't sure what to do. Then I remembered I had bought this new embossing folder with scissors and buttons on so went with that and ended up doing a mini sewing kit!
I rummaged through my ribbons and decided to go with this gorgeous gold edged ribbon which you can find HERE.
The prize this week is

 I have used this vintage rose ribbon before and its is absolutely fabulous, so what a great prize!!

Image - See'D vintage stamp
Papers - Wellington Bear papers, cream card
Embellishments - ribbon
Medium - coloured with distress inks, metallic brush pen, promarkers
I embossed the front twice and cut out the button, scissors and rose so I could 3d them.
I cut out the circle so you can see through the card and made a pocket inside to hold the little scissors etc.
The wording was stamped using alphabet stamps and distress inks.
I roughed up the edges with scissors and inked it all with distress inks. Phew!

I would like to enter this into
Alphabet Challenge -P for  pocket
Allsorts - layers
Fashionable Stamping - small (mini sewing kit)
