A scrappy little shabby treasure ...

One more quick little post for you all this evening before I call it a day!  The Beary Scrap Shop is hosting a Guest Designer Call and I made this card especially for their sketch challenge ...

... it's {so me} -- filled with lots of delicious embellishments like buttons and a sweet little button card, machine sewing, tea-stained twill tape, Vintage Winter White Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop, a paper doilie, a chipboard dress form painted with cream paint, a teeny spool wrapped with baker's twine, kraft cardstock and paint to ink edges (creates a time-worn look) and a metal ring which I stamped a button on.  Sweet :)

Thanks for peeking in on me today ... I hope you're all having a wonderful and relaxing weekend!!!

Challenges for this card:

The Beary Scrap Boutique GDT Call - sketch challenge
The Kraft Journal - cute as a button
4 Crafty Chicks #27 - stitching
Simon Says Stamp - 1 image, 2 DSP's, 3 embellies
Tuesday Throwdown #38 - tag
