I created this card for the Mini VSN Friday week before last. It was the first challenge that day and we were to use Fabric on our card. Since it was a pirate VSN, I thought I would use Burlap I had bought last month and hadn’t used yet.

I cut burlap with a Label 18 Nestabilities die and used it as a background for my sentiment label. Natural White cardstock was cut and embossed with Classic Oval Nestabilities dies. The sentiment from Verve stamp set was stamped with Kind Words Rich Cocoa Memento ink. The oval was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. A swirl from the stamp set Blessings was stamped over the sentiment in the same color.

A 1 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ strip of Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper was adhered to a 3 7/8″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack. The layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Natural White cardstock.  A piece of retired Websters pages trim was adhered over the vertical strip before white May Arts Organdy ribbon was tied around both the paper and lace trip. The layers were then adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. A Prima Flower and two decorative pearl pins finish off the card .

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and smiles
