My Sheri Crafts Challenge #120: Stitch Time

Our new challenge at My Sheri Crafts is to make a project which includes a sewing theme, so I took advantage of my Spellbinders' A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader and Decorative Dress Forms dies to do some hand stitching on my fun little card, made with a very special young woman in mind! We seldom get to see each other, but last time we had an especially rewarding shopping excursion. She's going through a bumpy time professionally and we reminisced about the fun we had, so this little card just makes me think of her even more!
I started out cutting the A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader die #4 and lacing two coordinating colors of 6-ply DMC embroidery thread separately through the outside holes, framing my card. I did the same with Die #1 using 3 strands of floss, as well as stamping my sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Birds of a Feather.
To die cut my dress, I folded a piece of CS in half and placed the die just above my fold, so I'd have a way to insert my tiny Tim Holtz hanger and hang it from the matching TH brad. I used a Timeless Touches Elegance Border template to create the holes on my dress neckline and hemline and again added hand stitching. A ribbon and rose finish off the dress at the waist and a cotton ribbon is laced through at the bottom of my card and tied into a bow to hold my sentiment tag.
Would LOVE to see your "Stitch Time" project over @ My Sheri Crafts, so please post it for us all to enjoy!
