Vintage Plum "Remember When"

The challenge at Moxie Fab World this Monday is Plum Crazy.  Here is my exploration of the classy character of this color!  Be sure to go check out the other ladies' work--it is stunning!
Also the challenge over at Our Creative Corner is a Vintage theme; so the two went well together.

I haven't pulled out my sewing machine to use on a card since our move; but for this one, I just had to have stitching.  I love sewing paper and, now that I have a bigger workspace, I can actually leave my machine out to use more often!

Materials used on this card:

Light green textured cardstock from DCWV Brights Stack
Backing papers from My Mind's Eye
Vintage Stamp Image from Hot Off the Press "Stamp Cut-Outs" 12x12 sheet

5/8-inch Offray Ribbon "Lemongrass"
2 1/2-inch Pink Sheer Ribbon
Plum-colored buttons
"Remember When" Woven Inspiration Label from Colorbok
Rose stickers and frame from stash--(I think We R Memory Keepers, but not sure)
Bronze metallic brads from Spare Parts
Sewing Machine

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!
