Friends Make Life Colorful!

I am submitting my card to the Freshly Made Sketches #70 Challenge

I finished my card after daylight last night and we have no sunshine today, so this was the best photograph I could get of my card to be able to enter it by the deadline of noon today.

The patterns on this card are not paper, but fabric. 

I used CTMH's Chantilly Textiles with CTMH Cotton Candy & Buttercup cardstock.

I cut the fabric butterfly on Shanna's Cricut Machine using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and Heat 'n' Bond Ultrahold that I bought from Fabricland. I outlined the butterfly with Diamond Stickles. 

I used the Heat 'n' Bond on the green material as well so that I could cut it with my Stampin' Up straight cutter.

I used fabric scissors to do the zig zag cut on the pink fabric and then straight stitched with pink thread on the sewing machine. 

The sentiment banner was hand cut and I also used CTMH's Pink Glitter Gems to embellish the card.

I used CTMH's Hoppy Easter stamp set with CTMH Cotton Candy Ink.


  1. Pretty! I do like the glittery gems in the top corner and the stickles outlining the butterfly. so cool that the entire card is made of fabric!

  2. So the fabric! Lee-Ann :)
