Fabric Flower

Hi, I've been wanting to buy the Tim Holtz tattered flower die for ages, and I finally bought it! I was worried it wouldn't work in my cuttlebug, even though I'd read that it would, and am relieved that it does!

I made this card for a few challenges. At Just Add Ink, the theme is to add fabric to your card.

At Flutterby Wednesday's, your project needs to use a flower, a butterfly and a diecut or punch.

At Simon Says Stamp, the theme is Anything Goes.

At Crafting with Dragonflies, the theme is to create a girly card! 

I die cut some calico flowers and spritzed them with Perfect Pearls mist in both gold and perfect pearl colours. I dried the flowers with my heat gun, then dabbed on some distress ink in Victorian Velvet & Worn Lipstick.

The Memory Box butterfly was cut from a piece of gold shimmery cardstock. It was dabbed with the same distress inks.

The leaves are from Stampin Up's Bird Builder punch (borrowed from my sister's friend, thanks Amanda :)

Materials used: Sizzix embossing folder; Tim Holtz tattered flowers die; memory Box butterfly die; Stampin Up punch; distress inks, bling & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
