Two in One Challenge!

Cute Card Thursday's Challenge 23 is "Soft Furnishings" you can use fabric, ribbon, stitching, buttons etc, anything you can find on the soft furnishings in the home ie curtains, cushions, sofas etc. I better not tell you what my first thoughts were, but it contained naughty words lol! But everything seemed to come together today. The card was made using the Friday Sketchers Sketch No15 by Mumur, which is absolutely fab and another I shall be using again! So here is what I did with it......
Sorry about the photo, but its dark here now. CS ~ Papermill, DP ~ off a disc containing 3000 backing papers from ebay ages ago, probably one of my first buys, leather ~ dont panic, I didn't cut a piece out of the back of my sofa. I got a 5 huge bin liners full of leather off cuts from Freecycle last summer and just stuffed it my loft cos I knew I'd use some of it sometime, the studs are re-upholstery studs from when I re-upholstered a few 3 pieces suites, string ~ off Andy's new jeans he bought today from Primark, flowers ~ cut from leather using Cuttlebug and Hippie Chick Alpha's, small flower centres are brads ~ stash, sentiment is PC generated, image ~ is my new stamp I got today from Dewdrop Craftz (see post below) and is paper pieced and coloured using watercolour pencils, sakura pens and H2O's.

Its DH birthday 26th August and Rylee asked me to make him a card for his Pops. Talking of Rylee I've had him on a strict training regime....I'm trying to teach him how to do the washing....



I don't think he's quite got it yet, but we're working on it lol!

  8. Great card, I love the image. Thank you for the lovely comments you have left on my blog. The die for the swirls is from Quickutz and is called Flourish, it is an old die and is hard to find at on-line shops, I got mine from ebay. x
