Sensational Saturday

Welcome back for another Sensation Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow!
This weeks Challenge was a FUN challenge. The challenge is to use Fabric on your card or project. This is my card I was inspired by this challenge.

I started with my base cardstock and sewed a mat in beige fabric. I'm not sure what type of material this is all I know Is it's left over material from when I created chair cushions for my dining room. I chose to keep the raw frayed edge on the material edge which added nice texture to the left of my card. The Dark brown photo mat is a faux leather I had on hand from various projects. I decided to use the Valentine vintage Post card image from the new valentine release from Sugar creek Hollow. This image has so much potential I love it. I accented with some white lace sprayed with Lindy's stamp gang starburst spray, Prima flowers and Tim Holtz rose trimmings. Some crinkle ribbon from Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe was the perfect touch at the top to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Oh so lovely Dawn! Your use of this new digi is absolutely gorgeous - it truly looks like an antique Valentine card from old collection. And I love the frayed edge of your fabric-genious with stitching as a perfect finishing touch!

Love the card, all that fantastic layering and mix of textures and yet it maintains a soft delicate feel. The truly amazing part is that both legs of the bird are still attached...LOL Oz
