Marci with Flower

Hey everyone!

We've been having some fabulous weather, I hope it stays like this for a while.  Not too hot, but nice enough that we don't have to bundle up, but at night, brrrr...  Those are the times I want to jump in to my pjs and veg on the couch.  lol...

Here is another card I submitted to Designed to Color for the Trending Mark call for the Aug/Sep 2012 issue.  The trending mark was to use fabric on your project.  This is the second card in the magazine on page 16.  The other card I submitted can be found here.  I was intrigued with the challenge to use fabric on a card.  I went to the local Joann's and searched, now if you've been to a Joann's you know there are tons of fabrics to choose from, and out of all the ones I saw I picked one from the bargain bin. (lol)  It had a really sweet print on it that reminded me of my youth and when my mom used to sew cute little tops for me and my sister.  I knew that Marci with Flower from La-La Land Crafts would be the perfect image to go with that pattern.  Now all I needed to do was put everything together.  Here's what I came up with...
Doesn't she go perfectly with the fabric pattern I chose?  I kept the design really CAS with the fabric and Marci the focal point.  I added a couple butterfly chippies from MIC to add a fun touch to the card, matted the fabric to some red & white polka dot patterned paper and mounted them all on to white daisy embossed cardstock from  Hanko Designs. 

I would love to try using fabric again, so look for something in the future.  Well that's all for today.  Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!!  Mahalo for stopping by!

I just discovered your blog and love what you are sharing. Your use of fabric on this card is a perfect pairing with the stamped image. I'll be visiting your blog again for more inspiration.

That fabric goes so perfectly with her! Such a sweet card, Leanne!
Glad you are having some nice days, we are still cold here and they are forecasting three days of snow! I'm so ready for spring!
