♥ give thanks ♥ Fun with Fabric Challenge!

Here is a card/gift card holder that I made for the Fun with Fabric Challenge over the Moxie Fab World blog. I love this challenge!! I think paper crafting and fabric is the perfect marriage. I love the shabby look and feel that fabric gives cards and projects. I also used a sketch from the Go-to-Sketches magazine. Love that issue!!

I used some fabric as my background over some Kraft cardstock, as well as a fabric covered button and I cut out a fabric rose to adhere over the chipboard heart. The envelope is a Kraft envelope from Maya Road, which I also covered in fabric. To finish off the card, I also used some MS punched butterflies, pearls, some hand stitching around the edges, a Melissa Frances rub-on and some handmade tea-dyed ribbon. (which I just tried for the 1st time!!)

My mom is always giving gift cards to neighbors whenever they do a favor for my parents, so I think this will be good for her!! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!! And don't forget about my Giveaway!! Just go to THIS POST!!

My little boy is growing up way too fast!!Hugs...
