Calendar Girls February 2014 Challenge

Hello there, Glad you stopped by... Our hostess this month is Kelly and she gave us a very interesting challenge....this is what she said:

Hostess: Kelly

February's Challenge is Fancy Schmancy Fabulous Fabric!

That’s right – we’re getting fancy this month with .... Fabric!
I thought we’d shake things up a bit and try something we haven’t done before and create with fabric – fabric scraps – fabric flowers, panels, and/or the whole card! Think flowers, trees, houses, even holiday ornaments, etc –
the choice is yours BUT ....

You cannot stamp your cards this month!

You may use a sentiment as a compliment to your card but the fabric (or fabric ‘element’) must be the focal point of your card.

You can do this, ladies! No sewing required! Glue, glue dots, Aileens, etc ...
show us your fancy, your schmancy, your fabulous fabric cards!

Let's do this!

Now my brain went round and round and again round and round trying to figure out what to off to my stash I went. I knew I was going to used tulle as I had some left over from the decorations I made for my nieces baby shower but what else???... In digging around I found some fabric dsp with adhesive on the back and pulled it out. I used a white base for the card and adhered the fabric dsp....well that was a start...scrounging around some more I found lace, feathers, a string of beads and some irridescent rhinestones...I made a few vellum flowers and stuck all the components together and this is what I came up with:

I hope this is on the thought wave you were going for Kelly. I had a good time working on this challenge and I';m sure the other Calendar girls have some amazing creations for us to check out. So if you have a bit of time....stop by their blogs and see what they have created...

Thanks for stopping by,
Until next time,
