Vintage Page Designs: Fabric Heart Card

Fabric Heart Card

I've had a creative dry spell recently, but getting out the fabric this week really got my juices flowing again.  Perhaps I just needed to mix it up a bit!  This heart was cut from an old blouse of mine that I can't bear to part with because the fabric is so lovely.

I made the card for Mother's Day and for Sarah Engels Greer's challenge this month.  Check out all the beautiful samples she made - they're astounding!

There might be a foot of snow on the ground here by morning.  What a great way to begin the month of March!  The reason I tell you this is that I couldn't get a good photo of my card - the light is just so poor - all the pictures have a blue cast on them.  But I did what I could in Photoshop....

Wish me luck shoveling :(

Ali, this is just gorgeous. There's nothing like getting your creativity going again. I have used old clothing pieces like this as well - I'm a button-cutter and a lace-tearer! 8-)
