Vintage Boudoir

Cindy is our lovely host this week in The Shabby Tearoom  and has chosen this fabulous pic for us to work with and asks we create a card/project using the colours in the inspiration photo and one item related to sewing.

I wanted to do something completely fresh after all the Christmas cards, and I think this is rather Spring-like. I've used a combination of Pink Paislee and  Prima Pixie Glen papers and chipboard shapes, which are my current craft room love! For dimension I cut elements from Pixie Glen papers and added punched and die cut shapes for interest. For the sewing elements I've used a pin and buttons.

The gorgeous Shutters stamp is from our sponsor this week Tiffany Doodles digi stamps, who are giving away 4 prizes this week! Grand prize - 10 digis, 1st place - 6 digis, 2nd place - 4 digis, 3rd place - 2 digis. Good luck!
