Pattern of Friendship

2013_01_26IMG_0922 Happy Birthday to my neighbor and dear friend Lynne.  Lynne is an avid seamstress and I always make her a sewing related card.  I think I collect way too much sewing stuff because I would love to be able to sew.  In fact when I grow up and retire, I plan to take sewing lessons and quilting.  Oops, I am gettiing off track.  When I received the new Stampin Up Spring Catalog I fell in love with the All Dressed Up stamps #129174 and the coordinating Dress Up Bundle #131095.   The background DSP is from the fabulous Print Poetry DSP Paper Pack #129312.  How cute is the sewing related paper?  I also cut the dress and apron from thie Printed Poetry workshop.  I pieced the apron to the dress and then hid it with a piece of primrose satin stitched ribbon and added a flower at the waist.  The dress was added to the manequin that was embellished with pearls.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set called Pattern of Friendship.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the  Canvas Creations sheet.  I then edged the canvas with pinking sheers.  I love this card and know that Lynne will too.

Warning….. I am obsessed with this die so there are many more dress cards forthcoming.  I am thinking it is related to my paper doll obsession from my youth.

    I love this set too, Cathy! And I think for many of the same reasons! It plays to my years of sewing and going way back to my paper dolls! Do little girls still play with paper dolls? My daughter had the American Dolls paper dolls for a while!
