Sugar Creek Hollow Week 34: Sew Fashionable

Happy Saturday Friends!!
It is week 34 at Sugar Creek Hollow and our theme this week is "Sew Fashionable" we would like to see you work our theme into your Vintage or Shabby chic creations this week!  So lets see some stitching and some type of vintage fashion (shoes, hats dresses etc).  This week we are lucky to have Live and Love Crafts sponsor our challenge.

One lucky winner will receive 6 skeins of hand dyed crinkle ribbon of their choice!!
I have been talking about getting my sewing machine out to do some stitching on my cards for over a year now...LOL..and Finally I drug it from the basement and dusted it off to do some stitching on my card below :0)
I used the Crinkle ribbon from Live and Love Crafts to create the shabby flower in the lower right.  I went ahead and just draped it naturally around the rest of my card.  Here is a close up of the flower and my stitching below.
The image I chose I found at the Graphic's Fairy.  I just changed the name and location to my own :0)
I inked all my edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  I added some small ivory mulberry roses and brown blingy bling trim from

I can't wait to see what types of vintage or shabby chic 
"Sew Fashionable" creations you come up with and link to
