Birthday Passionette- Sew Lovely

Hello there are you enjoying your weekend? We had some fab weather here lots of sunshine but the air is a bit crisp which means the Summer is ended and autumn is taking hold.

Today Carole one my original Passionettes is celebrating her special Happy Day. Carole loves red and the card I made her has plenty of Real Red.

I used the Sew Lovely stamp set and made two posh looking frocks using our fabulous punches. I used the Heart to heart punch for the bodices and the a circle and a oval punch for the skirt part. Very easy and quite sweet.

I also used Vintage Vogue stamp set and French Foliage  to add a stamped background to my focal image, crumpled seam binding and a pearl topped button finishes off my card.

I just hope Carole likes it, I have been estranged from my mojo lately but this always happens when I receive new product to play with I find it all a bit overwhelming.

You can see a close up of the funky dresses, I made two so Carole could choose which one she likes best Winking smile
