Freshly Made Sketches 34

Forgive my photography skills here....trying out some new things

As I was rummaging through my craft cabinet, I came across this yellow fabric.  I think it was used at some point for a gift bag stuffing.  I love the sheerness, the crispness and of course the color of it.  I used my new swap meet find die to make lots of flowers.  I used the smaller flower on this card with about 10 layers.  By having a solid cardstock base, the petal shapes truly stand out.  This flower actually have a hole for the center.  That made it easy for me to add a button (I had to trim off the shank) and put 3-D tape underneath and held all the layers together. The leaves are a heart stamp that I stamped in green.   The light pink is some mulberry paper that I put a solid color underneath.  Otherwise, it was just too sheer for that I was going for.  As you can tell, I am trying to use up the rest of the stripe.  I've about got it all gone.  I used it in the inside of the card as well.
