Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 90

Good Morning my lovelies.

My card today is for the new challenge at  Totally Tildawhere the theme for the next fortnight is 'Tilda's Sewing Room'.
 For this challenge, you need to feature in some way at least one of the following:
Cotton Reel
Sewing Machine
Mannequin/Dress Form.

As you can probably imagine, for someone like me that struggles with embellishments, this really was a challenge!

I think I (almost) deserve a medal for this one with all those embellies!

Tailor Tilda is coloured with DI markers.
The gorgeous papers are Pion Design Alma's Sewing Room.

So...for the challenge I went with a full house!
Sewing Machine is on the image.
A little Cotton Reel wound with bakers twine (thank you my sweet friend for the cotton reel )
A Dress Form (thank you Sandra)
And I even added some buttons for good measure.

  4. Gorgeous card and love the colour choice. Love the embellies - well done!!Lol! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. Another fabulous card! I love your colouring style and all those beautiful embellies - terrific! Jo x

  6. That dress form is a wonder & I love the way you've used the buttons with their 'packaging.' The pretty scalloped edging along the bottom, the lace panel behind the image & your patterned paper all echo the material she's stitching on beautifully.
    Hope you've fared OK in the storms.

  7. Hi Elaine, gorgeous card so delicate with cute those embellishments. The tiny reel is so sweet, I was brought up to call them " PIRNS," I've kept all the old wooden ones, I can't bear to part with them. Love the two little buttons stitched on the card and the metal dress clip, a perfect card for a stitcher. Hope the suns shining, we have a beautiful day here after a horrible night of wind and rain, have a good week...Trish

  8. You did a great job Elaine,your card is gorgeous!!

  16. Pure gorgeousness my friend !!! What a perfect card & so wonderfully embellished. Those little packs of buttons & the dress form couldn't be a nicer touch to this little sewing Tilda. How do you get that nice little punched look around the circle you have your image on. It looks like its sewn with no thread. I find your work amazing ...
