This card is in honor of today's FS Tricia Traxler, (aka T. Joy). Believe me her gallery was a joy to go through, so many sweet cards it was hard to choose. But I finally decided to case this card of Tricia's because I loved her layout:
I changed the image, colors, the border punch, added button brads and a spool of thread in place of flower. Added some faux stitching to compliment the sewing theme. I thought the nestie shape went well with the dress form - sort of an hour glass shape :)
I have to share another fantastic garage sale find. The spool is colored with a TH Distress Marker that I bought for 25 cents. I bought 9 others for the same price. Pretty good, huh ?
Thanks so much for taking a closer look, hope you like it :)

What a great rummage sale find! Don't you love it when that happens?? This is such a sweet vintage-y card. The pink and brown colorway and the pretty stitching are just perfect! Thank you for helping to make my day so special!!

Barbie, love your color pallet, and fab image. I love dress forms, and always imagine making a card display from a vintage find (ooooo...year sale wish list!) How great to find such a great buy too, that's almost as much fun as stampin'! Beautiful case Sister! Hugs....
