This didn't turn out quite like I had hoped but the idea was fun to try anyways. I was inspired by a piece of orchid frabric I found this week...thought it would go with the color challenge and the craft spots my demo dropped off this week. I wish the stamping on fabric had turned out a little more vibrant and the special friend on the ribbon hadn't bled. Any tips?

Cute fabric idea but I've never tried it, just seen it done with already printed fabric. Yours looks much, much better! I like the frayed edges and ribbon. Never stamped on ribbon either but I wonder if some Krylon clear spray coating would stop the bleeding, someone here uses it on c/s before watercoloring and it works for her.

I like your combined challenge card. Your fabric was a great idea as was the stamped ribbon. I wonder if using Stazon Ink would have bled less. You might try a practice piece. I still think your card is really unique and pretty. Nancy
