A cut above the rest & a CPS sketch that's sew sweet!

 I love this sketch!  It has been calling to me for days…this is CPS Sketch #212.  I didn't think I'd have anytime to create today, but I made this in less than an hour:
I don't buy craft supplies very often (other than adhesive).  I try to use what I have, and after 10 or 12 years of "collecting", it's a lot.  A LOT.  Every once in a while it gets stale, kwim?  Two weeks ago I took advantage of the 40% off and free shipping at JoAnn.com to buy some yummy Tim Holtz idea-ology embellies.  I had to have this ruler ribbon!  My order arrived today, finally.  I started with my 8x8 October Afternoon The Thrift Shop papers.  I then added SU! hardware to one side of the Tim ribbon.  I chose this Lawn Fawn stamp sentiment, "you are a cut above the rest!"  I wanted a fancy label for the sentiment, so I went searching through my Cricut cartridges, and found this one on my French Manor cartridge.  What do you think?

Thank you, Card Positioning Systems!  (CPS)

I'm a new follower thanks to the love link party at getting cricky. I'm glad I stopped by. I was reading some of you other posts and was intreged by the one about your twins. I have a number of friends with children with autism and they haven't said anything about the folic acid. I want to mention it to them and direct them to your post. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great card... I love The Thrift Shop papers (I have the 12 x 12). That Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon is perfect on there... just the ideal combination. I saw that JoAnns was having a sale, but didn't take advantage of it like you did. Smart shopping!
Have a Happy Day!

So cute! Or should I say "stylin'"? :) I saw that sketch, but haven't gotten around to it yet. It may meet the fate of the other sketches I don't get to. :(

And I soooo admire your use of what you have. I should try that, but I am weak.

Lovely! Love the layout and the ladies. It reminds me of a 1960s cover of a Simplicity dress pattern which brings back many memories.
