The Card Chain Challenge

I am back to playing in the card chain challenge; this month my card goes to Dawn in New Zealand.  I am trying out something a little different. The challenge I chose was to use the colors - sky blue, navy blue and red.  I happened to have some fabric roses that perfectly fit those colors.



The fabric is attached to sticker paper, this stops the edges from fraying.  Then the images in the fabric I want to use are cut out.  Next, I arranged my bouquet, popped some  press and seal on so it stayed in place while I turned it over to apply adhesive.  I mounted it on an ivory color card base as that matches the fabric background best.  I decided on a bold die cut sentiment in a matching red cardstock. The die is layered 4 times from some light weight cardstock.  I am pleased with the results.  I do have a handful of more floral patterned fabric squares, so you'll be seeing more of these in the future.

Thanks much for stopping by!
