Sew Sweet of You - Daydream Designs

I've been having SO much fun playing with all my sweet new images from Daydream Designs.  As most of you know, I just love all things vintage, sewing related, etc., so it was a sheer delight to use these images from the Sew Sweet Sentiments and Vintage Button Cards Collections.  Each of these sets comes with MANY different images, and I've used just one file from each of the darling sets on this card.  That's one of the best things about Daydream Designs images.  The prices are VERY reasonable, and each set includes MANY different files that you can use on a variety of projects.  I look forward to making many more projects with each set, but for now. . . . I just wanted to share this simple little card with you to give you a feel for the style of images you will find in these two amazing sets.  Be sure to stop by Daydream Designs to check out all the gorgeous digital files Diane has created for you.  I promise that you won't be disappointed, and that you get an awful lot for your money.  The creativity possibilities are endless, which you can see on all the Dream Team designers' blogs.  Here is my little card.
Besides the darling button card image and Sew Sweet Sentiment from Daydream Designs, I also used Coordinations cardstock, machine stressing, distressing, a JiliBean Soup journaling spot, a suede leave from Freckled Fawn, a painted and glittered mini clothes pin, a stick pin, some hand-made scrunched seam binding, some buttons, a Cosmo Cricket girl cut from a sheet of patterned paper, and I think that covers it.
I can never resist entering some challengs.  Here are the challenges I've decided to play along in with this card. - Papertake Weekly Challenges - Sketch #72 or Other Sketch - I chose to use their Sketch #55 for this particular card. - Crafty Mess Challenge Blog - Challenge #18 - Distressed/Aged - I love to distress the edges of my projects. - Kaboodle Doodles Challenges - Challenge #138 - Stitching - Sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, which I LOVE - Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Challenge #158 - Show Something Handmade - Stitching and Hand-made Scrunched Seam Binding - Totally Gorjuss Challenge Blog - Challenge #150 - Thank You - This card says "Sew Sweet of You", and is a Thank You for a friend who did something super special for me. - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog - Challenge #83 - Anything Goes - Twist of Faith Cards Challenge Blog - Challenge #4 - Thinking of You - This card is to let a friend know that I am thinking about her and all the very sweet things she has done for me. - Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes - I keep crossing my fingers on this one. - Paper Make-Up Stamps - Challenge #55 - Digi Make-Over - I used a digi vintage button card from Daydream Designs - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Challenge For The Love of Sparkle - I added lots of glitter to my mini clothes pin. - Card Crafter's Circle - Challenge #42 - Vintage
I really hope that you will stop by Daydream Designs to take a look at Diane's lovely images in her sweet shop.  She would love to meet you, and you will be SO impressed with the wide variety of fun images and sentiments available at great prices.
