Keep Calm and Make Things Card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card for you using the fabulous new range from Sarah Hurley, All Sewn Up, teamed with some fun sewing themed ribbon from Crafty Ribbons-the Sarah Hurley kit can be found here and the Crafty Ribbons sets are here in case you are interested-they complement each other perfectly :-)
I printed the Sarah Hurley kit onto Printable Canvas sheets-those of you who visit often will know this is one of my most loved new find of the past few months-it gives a great texture and especially on a sewing themed project it really works well :-)

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
