A Sewing Room Card

I'm still in awe of the Alterations
 Sewing Room Die. How does Tim Holtz create such marvelous tools?

Of all the Sizzix Dies that I have, The Sewing Room 
has given me more fun in creating... ummm... next to Tattered Florals. Oh well, what can I say... I love Tim Holtz stuff. His products are amazing!

I once again relied on the Pixie Dust Paperie Kits
for the basis of this card. American Crafts Leaf Green Cardstock and October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker - Needle and Thread DP for the background with a bit of machine stitching. Echo Park's Everybody Loves Christmas - Borders for the skirt and scraps for the belt and top. I threaded some beads to make the necklace and glued on a Recollections mini rose.

A couple more scraps for the back of this great
little comic strip piece. I wish I could remember the name of this pink floral paper... only have tiny bits left and would love to have more. Used my Holtz Paper Distresser on these and inked with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The Martha Stewart punched paper is by 7gypsies called Fernwood. 
Maya Road Leaf  Trinket Pins, a Recollections mini rose and other Etsy purchased roses finish up the corner. 
I'll let you know if I grow tired of using this die... never!
Have a Happy Day!
