Look the Part

Yeah! One of my very favorite challenge blogs is back after a month long break!  Make My Monday is back with a month of challenges around Vintage.  For the first week, we are to create a project depicting Vintage Fashion.  The focal image above, a complimentary stamp I received from Crafty Individuals when purchasing other stamps was the only image I felt I had along with me that worked.  When I think of fashion, I also think of sewing.  This is probably because I sewed all of my own clothing for decades!  And so, I intertwined sewing elements also from Crafty Individuals with this fashionable vintage image.  A touch of black lace and vintage seam binding, a dot of black liquid pearls and a few ChitChat stickers and my card is complete.  Thanks for dropping by!  Best wishes, Yvonne
