I made this card for a friend in the States. She's not a follower here so I can post it. I'm mailing it off today or tomorrow :D
I used Sketch #27 from CPS:

The papers is from the Creativity magazine (Issue 20, December 2010) to celebrate the quilts and needlework pieces in the V&A museum's exhibition in London. I LOVE this vintage / antique look of it. And it's linen paper so it's very soft and 'fabricky'. I wanted to incorporate the whole sewing theme of the papers so added sewing on the ribbon and a bronze button.

Stamps used:
Sentiment: Tree Silhouettes (GinaK Designs)
Border: Docrafts - Creativity Magazine

Other materials:
Colorbox "Coffee House" ink set (for border stamp)
Memento Rich Cocoa (sentiment)
Paper from Creativity Magazine V&A papers
Rose Creations Spellbinders die
Tim Holtz distress paper
