Fabric


Ok I may be cheating a bit here but the new challenge on Everybody Art Challenge is for fabric, I do have some random bits of material but not anything pretty or have any idea what to do with it to put on a card. Of course I shall be kicking myself when I see the ideas from the team and entries.
So I settled for Lace well its a kind of fabric and then I decided I could just put my usually strip of lace and ribbon. So I added some running stictches along a strip and pulled tight to join it into a circle and used it behind a paper flower and added pearl brad to hold it together.
The sketch is actually Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the papers are those Echo Park possibly True Friends.
The little bear is from LOTV and I used the balloon he's holding for the other balloons.
Don't forget to check out the team and their fabulous entries.
Well the Wedding card is done but I've been informed by DD she needs one just like if for the end of the month but I refuse to make a box for the gift she got. I made one yesterday and it was a comedy of errors, it would have been cheaper to buy one but I wasn't going to let a piece of card beat me.
First of all I made it too small so I had to make another but why oh why do I have such a probably with lids. Three lids later I have one that fits so down to decorating and it looked pretty but I used one of the lids that didn't fit why didn't I throw it away.
I also want to say thank you for such supporting comments and e-mails about my post yesterday.
