Happy Thursday! It is time for another Stampin' B's DT challenge! This week I got to take my first turn as hostess of the Stampin' B's challenge, and I challenged the team to make a card using purple and turquoise and adding something shiny or sparkly.
My "DP" for this card is actually a piece of calico fabric from my stash. I've always thought this is the most beautiful shade of purple! After stitching it to my card base with my sewing machine, I frayed the edges (or at least as best as I could manage). The butterfly and sentiment are a *sneak peek* from a new stamp set called Take a Peek that will be released by Mark's Finest Papers next week. Just wait until you see the cute lil' critters in the rest of this set!!
My mother-in-law loves to quilt and sew. We will be sending this fabric-bedecked card to her for her birthday next week. Hope she'll like it!
Thanks for taking a peek!
