You are Sew Lovely

Hi all
I had a free stamp from the docrafts creativity mag this week and have created this little gift set using it. I love the cute sewing accessory purse ...it was so easy to make using a 6x6 card base...you could adapt it to hold all kinds of goodies, the fab papers are new to my stash and are  from papermania /docrafts and are called Happy Days. The buttons and lace  are from my stash. The sweet sissors charm and organza  ribbon are from Meiflower Crafts. The sewing themed embossing folder is from xcut
I used my fab craft-dee bow tool to make my  perfect handmade bow.
