Sew Easy to Love for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! August Week 2 sketch challenge:
I try to use Verve stamps as much as possible for my VLV cards; and I certainly have enough to satisfy most.  But I was so anxious to use my new stamp and Die-namics "Sew Nifty" set from MFT.  And stamping time is scarce these days, so...

I used papers from October Afternoon that I've been holding on to for a while.  LOVE that aqua dotted print, and I've already used the other sheet in the pad, so I'm hoarding it a bit.  :)  
I pleated that layer, and backed it on top and bottom edges with just the top edge of the Picket Fence die from Taylored Expressions.  
I adhered aluminum foil to cardstock to make it a little stiffer, and die cut the tiny pair of scissors from the Sew Nifty set (aren't they darling??) and dangled them with yellow baker's twine.
Paper pieced the dress from from the Sew Nifty set, and added some stitching since it is a "sewing" themed card.  ;)
Thanks for looking.
