Thank you "sew" much

This is my second week being on the Design Team at Crafty Creations Challenges.  Our host/sponsor this week is Jamie and her theme is "You have me in stitches", either using stitching on the card or a funny saying.  Make sure head on over to CCC and join us and find out what our sponsor has to offer.

This card was fun for me to make and rather quick for me also, less than a day, but you will see why later.

Now for most people when they say fast card it would be an hour or so, well one day is fast for me even with all the help I got on this one using Dazzle Stickers , I still had to pick out my papers and toy around with the design and which stickers I would use.  Plus I think I get distracted a lot (my own fault)LOL.
If you are not familiar with the Dazzle stickers check them out they come in all different kinds of things.  As delicate as they look they are very sturdy, in fact I had put the sewing machine on there twice and had to remove and reposition since it was crooked, but once you get the correct placement I just run them over with my brayer and they are stuck down!  Isn't the ruler part the coolest, it is a Dazzle also.
The background is DCWV paper from the Crafty Stack that has button and spools of thread on it.  The yellow frames piece on the upper left side I embossed using the Houndstooth folder in my Cuttlebug, then I  inked it slightly, you can't really see it.  The cream colored piece behind the sewing machine I stamped a pair of scissors all over it using my VersaMark stamp pad, again hardly visible.  Then I cut a circle and a scalloped shadow using my Cricut and stamped the saying on it, added a heart button and that finished it off.

I also made this card following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday #183, this is a fund challenge that I like to participate in whenever I can. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always if there are any questions I would be happy to answer them.  Or you can leave me a comment, I love them!
