Trying To Get Vintage, Take Two, And Make It A Double!

I absolutely loved this newly released image pack when it was released recently at Stamping Dragon Designs. It's called the Sewing Pack and comes with images of the dress form, an embroidery hoop, scissors and sewing machine. One of my favorite image sets! As soon as I seen these, I thought of Vintage cards. Anyone who has followed my blog for even a short time, knows that I've never really done much in the way of vintage cards. I love the look of some of them though, and this digi image set made me want to try another attempt at a vintage style card. I decided to make this a double second attempt, by also making this my second attempt at distressing. (and now this is my new favorite technique!)

I somehow messed up with timing on this card, though. I thought I had my challenge list up to date, but I guess I goofed on that end. I used the sketch from Create4Fun for this card....Only to realize that the challenge was already over, by the time I got my card posted LOL. In any case, I wanted to give them credit for this wonderful sketch.

Naturally, I used my Promarkers, to color the images for the card. I used four different patterned papers... That may be a first for me! I distressed and inked the edges of the image and sentiment. The crochet ribbon is new and is from Stampin Up. The buttons are from an old shirt, from some closet cleaning. The scissors are mounted with foam mounting tape, to add dimension and 3D effect.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
