Mo's Challenge #179

The Fabric of Our Lives

Tracy is our hostess for Mo's Challenge this week, and she's asked that we use fabric on our cards. 
I've had the idea for a card like this ever since I found some quilt squares left over from a Christmas stocking project from years ago. I kind of like the idea and will definitely be making similar cards in the future.
 The best part is that I've got a start on my Christmas cards!

Try as I might, I just couldn't get a good picture of this card. My camera does a better job with natural sunlight, but it's been pretty gloomy here lately.

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with  Embossing folder and Nestibilities, Mounting tape, VersaMark pad, Gold embossing powder, Heat gun

Papers: SU! Garden Green and Real Red, Neenah white

Embellishments: Quilt square, Silk ribbon, Pearl brad

I just know that you'll come up with a new and unusual way to use fabric on your card or project this week! Just be sure to use one of Mo's images and enter the challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to her shop!

So glad you stopped by!
