Birthday Card for Tammy

 I made this card for my daughter's birthday. Today is the day, so now, I can show the photos.  She is a very accomplished seamstress, taking after her maternal grandmother, so I know she will enjoy the theme.  I was inspired by an ATC seen on a blog recently. I wish I had written down the artist's blog title so I could give credit.  I have a stamp for the dressmaker's form.  I stamped it, then cut it out and embellished it.with scraps of paper and a bit of fabric and ribbon for the tie around the waist.  Made the bias tape card with  card stock and scrap booking paper.  The button card ??  Didn't have any decorative ones in my stash, so, went to EBay and found one up for bid, saved a picture, then made one to a small size and sewed on the tiny buttons.  The spool ? from a package of sewing embellishments.  It was wood -- I cut it in half and wound the thread around it. When I think about all of the buttons, seam tape, bias tape, rick rack, fabric scraps, ribbon and lace leftovers that I had from my days of sewing many years ago --- never would I have thought I would rue the day of letting it all go !!
