Easter Cutie

Hi there sweet friends!
This is our last chellenge before the Spring Blog Hop next week!!! Yay!!! Looking forward to that one! 
Just to warm up I chose to make another spring themed card and played with lots of bright colors for this one. It was a bit risky to put all these colors together especially because I also added a fabric panel (the bright colored one with flowers) both on the outside and in the inside.

So I definitely followed this week's challenge over at Digital Pencil Too. Our DT supertalented sister Tracy has prepared for us the following theme:
Add fabric to your projects!
Now, you can add many types of fabric to your projects:  lace, twill tape, burlap, canvas, cheesecloth, etc. Just let your imagination fly!

A while ago I had a few attempts at some quilting but gave up from lack of proper tools. But I still have some beautiful patterned fabrics and hope to actually make something nice soon enough. Fabric is a bit tricky to sew on paper but looks lovely and provides a natural texture. The image is mounted on pads but a cardstock panel was sewn on the fabric underneath to make sure it adheres properly. 
I also made a crocheted flower, these are quite quick to make and will add more on my cards in the future.

Card supplies:
Image- Mo Manning- Easter Baby Girl
DP: some digital papers plus fabric
Coloring medium: promarkers/copics
Embellishments: crocheted doily, IAM Roses and WOC flowers, eggs from local store colored with copics, lace from WOC
Die cutting: Tim Holtz- alphabet strip die, Cart-Us scalopped rectangle

That's my card for today, look forward to see your beautiful projects, I'm really curious about how we can include all sorts of fabrics on our projects.

Don't forget Mo is offering a 5 dollar shopping spree for every 25 entries so don't miss your chance for a free image:)!

Big hugs to all! Have a wonderful rest of the day!
