DS4J, Midway challenge 112...Buttons, Bow, Bling

Hello blogging friends,
I firstly want to say a big welcome to me newest followers, Lady Anne and Colette. So happy you have joined my little group of friends and hope you will find something here to inspire you.

We are halfway through this month, so it is time to remind you of our challenge #112 at Digistamps4Joy . Sara is hosting the challenge and has chosen...Buttons, bows and bling. Now that shouldn't be a problem, but if you need inspiration, then hop over to see what gorgeous cards the DT have made.

Just remember you do not have to use a DS4J image to enter, but you do get an extra chance for the main prize if you do.

Sewing set (x20)This is my card.
A pop out using some of the sewing set images, that can be found HERE This set contains 20 different sewing items.

Paper - I used pieces from my stash...trying to get through the stack of pieces and offcuts. The paper with the buttons was sent to me a number of years back from a blogging friend and this is now the last of it. I did some 'stitching' round the edges of some of the papers, with an old dressmakers pattern marker tool, that I had from my Mom's sewing box.

The zip diecut is a Marianne design, and I did some stitching with a white gel pen.

The images are coloured with distress inkpads. The Pin cushion I matted onto a piece of foam, so that I could put the pins into it. added some frosted lace. I added some thin ribbon onto the cotton reel, cut the needle out of mirror board and pinned it onto the reel. The thimble I raised with silicone, brushed glossy accents on for a glazed look and attached some gems to it.

Added, lace, buttons, bows and a doily diecut

The sentiments were taken from a book of sentiments, printed and cutout with a Nellie Snellen  MFD, and finished with some faux stitching round the edges.
