Last minute Minnie - Haberdashery dare

Gillian set the dare over at DCM on Friday. Yes, I know that's nearly a week ago now and I have no reasonable excuse! Still, the dare was to visit the haberdashery department and include stuff on your card. I actually did something earlier in the week but I didn't feel it qualified since I didn't do anything different than I've done a million times before!

I tried a bit harder here! Haby bits: button top left (I pushed the plastic centre out of this one and replaced with a copper brad), silk fabric for the stamped image, row of mixed mother of pearl buttons, narrow petersham ribbon, seed beads threaded onto tiny gold safety pin. The whole lot is on a piece of cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug Stylized Flower plate and coloured with a bit of gold rub-on wax.

Sorry the picture's a bit naff - I had to scan since it's so late in the day!

This is lovely - the colouring on the embossing is very elegant.
Btw - what does IYSWIM mean, or am I being very ignorant?
