Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Birthday Bash

We have an awesome new sponsor, Top Dog Dies, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Birthday Bash!  The designers received some fabulous Tog Dog Dies to work with for this challenge...such a quality product!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive some Top Dog Dies of their choice!


Happy Tuesday and welcome to the newest Curtain Call Challenge, Balloon Bash!

I die cut some shapes from the Top Dog's Sew Much Fun Die set.  The dress form was die cut once in kraft and once in the floral patterned paper. Then the dress was cut from the floral paper and I freehand cut a neckline. The dress was adhered to the kraft stand.  Twine was wrapped around the spool and the needle was inserted.  The scene was then adhered to an embossed background. 

This card is going to my Mom for her birthday today,  July 1st, which is also Canada Day!
These dies remind me of the many hours my Mom spent sewing when I was a girl!
Happy Birthday Mom!
xoxo
