This is my card for this week's Crafty Secret Challenge -- "It's All About Me". The "Sew Special" stamp set was the first I bought from Crafty Secrets. I bought it selfishly because it had to do with ME. I am a seamstress by training (not professionally) and come from a family of seamstresses. My maternal and paternal grandmothers, great grandmother and mother are all seamstresses. The sentiment is appropriate since I truly am "cut from a pattern I love". Fun challenge this week! TFL!

Love the color combo and how you did your collage BG. Love your tied buttons , I'm so bad about doing that..just lazy. I love this corset dress form the most. Thanks so much for sharing about yourself through this card. Sew On!
