A little bit of sewing to be done.....

Hello all,
I didn't think I would be back so soon, but I almost forgot about my card for the CDAC progressive challenge.   If you haven't played before then you are missing out on some fun. When you join you receive an image and you have 2 weeks to complete a card and enter into the challenge, you then receive another set of images and so you can keep going.
I had almost finished  and I had put it aside to complete, and forgot about it......but remembered it just in time. This challenge ends tonight, so here is my card:

I decided to make an easel card for a change.
The image is from  Patties Creations
I printed it on plain paper and then printed parts separately as I wanted to do some paper piecing and layering. I cout out the image with a Nestability die and did faux stitching round the edge.
The paper is from a pad of Papermania's Capsule Collection.
I cut some thread spools with a Joy die and the scissors is a Marianne die.
Computer generated sentiment and added some colourful buttons.
I need to see if there is a challenge or two to enter

That's it from me today. Enjoy the last bit of the week and then it's weekend...YAY!!
Love, Ursula

What an absolutely perfect image for the theme Ursula and it works especially well with all the added element of scissors and sewing thread.
