You're sew special

I saw the Muse card today and have already finished my version of it - being a slow cardmaker this is something that rarely happens to me, so I'm quite proud. And I think I might make even more using Michele Ferguson's wonderful card as inspiration.

I was inspired by the layout, white embossed background, vellum and silver detailing.
I wanted to use my neglected buttons embossing folder and my Spellbinders dressmaker die, and I knew I had some sewing themed sentiments in my stash, a freebie set from some time (years?) back. I heat embossed with silver EP onto vellum, added some pearls for the  necklace and some sequins for added sparkle.

This card is for:
Muse Challenge - CASE Muse's Card
Just Us Girls Vellum

love all the white Pia it makes the die cut really pop, sentiment is perfect for the card. Pia I used a free art greeting from TLC and reversed the colours in my graphic programme adding the background in a colour of my choice.You used a TLC sentiment on your card 27/04 in my programme the red becomes blue when I apply the negative effect and the black white
