Haberdashery!!!

Funnily enough I am a regular at my local haberdashery stall in my local market and the friday challenge over at DCM set by Gillian is:



Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....




So this is what I came up with:



Patterned paper is all by K and Co
Ribbon, lace, buttons and embroidery thread are all from my local Haberdashery market stall
Celebrate stamp is by Studio G
Bloom is by Papermania
Handstitching, doodling and inking to finish

Great card. I like the way you have used the lace. It can be difficult to use items like that and still have an up to date feel..you've done it!
