Mark’s Finest Papers

For this card I used a new set “Sew What!” by Mark’s Finest Papers.
I think this is such a fun set with lots of sentiments to go with the images.
I stamped the spool 2 times with Palette Noir, once on my main panel and once on an extra piece of cs. Same with the thimble.
I then colored the images with Copic markers and line cut the extra images.
I tried for the first time to do some sewing on my card with less than perfect results. LOL
I hid the corners “that were none too great” with stamped button images and on the right side a vintage fashion clip art. To the clip art I added some half pearls to the price tag and her camisole.
The matting is done in a black cs.
