Cute Card Thursday - Soft Furnishings


Challenge 23
This week the theme for the challenge is
Soft Furnishings
you can use fabric, ribbon, stitching, buttons etc, anything you can find on the soft furnishings in the home ie curtains, cushions, sofas etc. This is the great challenge on Cute Card Thursday.
I have used Katharinas Sketch No 22 for the layout of this card, I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the embellies, I think I have mastered the painting now I must get down to practise the use of embellishments etc. The DP is printed from C&C Triple Treasures Christmas Cd, the oval has been embossed onto red card stock, but does not show very well in the photo seems to blend in with the DP. I have cut out the Whiff of Joy Charlotte stamp and 3d her onto red and green matted card, the swirls are from Stempleglede grunge collection. The 3 flowers are from Poppicraft and buttons from Crafters Companion.
