I'm seeing red....

First of all, I need to apologize for the photo.  No matter where I photographed this picture I could not get the embellishment to show up without ruining the image.  I even tried to manipulate it in CorelDraw, but when you could see the sentiment, Tilda was all washed out.  So, I had to do it in two steps because I wanted you to see this lovely paper in its true color.  I sent my husband out for T-pins for this card.  I drew him a picture of them (wig pins? what are wig pins?) and he finally found them at a sewing store.  Bless his heart, he must have gone to five stores before he came up with them.  I saw the tutorial for this embellishment in Scrapbook News and Review and knew I had to make one of these.  I paper pieced Tilda's dress from a matching paper from the same pack.  I actually had to cut it out in three pieces, it wasn't the easiest dress to piece, but it's something I really like to do.  I plan to do a tutorial for this embellishment on the Stamping Scrapping Design Team Blog in October (Hey, Sheri), so look for that.  In the meantime, you can enter the 'red' challenge at StampingScrappingChallengeCentral.
