Splitcoast's Technique Lover's Challenge #300!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!! We did a little Christmas shopping and went to the grocery store...I think everyone else in town was there, too...LOL!! Hopefuly, I won't have to go again until after Thanksgiving!!! Anyway...
I am the hostess this week for the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast....I can't believe it's the 300th challenge...WOW!! I wanted to do something special to celebrate so we are going to revisit the past challenges and make a card with at least two of your favorite TLC's!! I think it will be fun to see how many challenges can be combined into one card....are you up for the challenge??? Here is the link to the past TLC challenges.
My card combines three past challenges: TLC11 Shabby Chic, TLC263 Very Vintage, and TLC207 Cut it Out.
Darcie's Create Clear Stamp set from Stamper's Dream was used for the large sentiment and the dress form, Crafty Secrets Material Girl for the sewing machine, and Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages for the sentiment. The dress form and the sewing machine were stamped with Versafine Black Onyx, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. Sewing was done around the edges and the sentiment was stamped on the little banner and embellished with the pin. The background was stamped with Rubbernecker's Victorian Diamond Panel. Lace, wrinkled seam binding, an antique button, and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Darcies Create, Crafty Secret's Material Girl, Rubbernecker's Victorian Diamond Panel, Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages
Paper: Pure Luxury Ivory, black, and Kraft.
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories: Pin, Antique Button, Twine, Wrinkled Seam Binding, Lace, Sewing Machine

OK, everyone....head to you stamping spaces and whip up a little something with your favorite techniques for today's TLC....you will have so much fun!!!
