More Cards With Sew Suite

Here are some more cards from the new Sew Suite set from the SU Occasions Mini catalog. The designer paper is called Sweet Stitches, and the sentiment is from Something to Celebrate, which is one of the hostess sets in the Occasions mini. I paper pieced the dress forms. Don't you just love that pom-pom trim? So cute! And that little pin cushion image is to die for--I think it's my favorite! This is just a very generic sketch, but sometimes that's all you need. I am very pleased with the way this card turned out.
This one, on the other hand...I used a Mojo Monday sketch from a few weeks ago that I thought would be perfect for these images. The row of pins is a rub-on, BTW. This card is just so blah to me, in spite of the bright colors. I'm not sure what to do about it. I think I'm going to try it again in a vintage color scheme and see if I like that better. The sent. is computer generated (get it? Missing you--and there's one button gone?).
PTI recently came out with a button card set, which I really like, but I like the fact that SU's set also has other sewing images in it. Still, I'll probably get PTI's set at some point. Until then, I'll be having fun with Sew Suite! Thanks for stopping by today!

ADORABLE!! I love those little pom poms on your first card. And the sentiment on the second card is so cute with the button missing.
