Embellish Magazine - thanks for the excuse!

For a long time now I've wanted to use fabric on my cards and the Embellish Magazine challenge gave me the perfect excuse!

I found the colours really difficult (again!), but I quite like color challenges over sketch ones as you need to really stretch your imagination (well, it does mine!). I used a pair of old jeans that I was hoping I'd squeeze back into one day - but hey who am I kidding?!! I'm sure I have old summer clothes that require cutting up too!

Don't you just love the sentiment? It's designed by Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday. I couldn't find them anywhere but Capture the Magic ordered it in for me especially - superstars! You can find hem here.

I've got to make my niece's 18th birthday card by Saturday - I haven't got a clue what I'm going to do!! (Panic setting in...)

Papers/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Making Memories, Elzybells Kraft cardstock
Mediums: Memento Tuxedo black ink
Stamps: Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards Loving Words
Accents: twill string and heart button from stash, green felt, jean fabric
Tools: Corner Chomper
