HHH - Fabric Flowers

Happy Friday, and Happy Hip Hop Hangover!! (Sorry I'm late with this's been a crazy morning!) ..Be sure to stop by the Unity blog to see who else has posts for this Friday!
Yesterday's Way to Use it challenge (WT205) at SCS was a good one...using fabric on your cards. Last June(?) I went with my friend to a quilt shop (she a quilter, not me), and picked up a pack of 6" squares of Moda fabric. The colors and patterns were so vibrant and fun, I just had to have it for inspiration. So, I pulled that pack off my display bar, and got to work:
I used my Cuttlebug and flower dies to cut flowers from the solid coordinating fabrics (for a thin fabric like this, I had to add 2 cardstock shim pieces), cut a tiny hole at the center of each one, rolled them in my hands so they would fray a bit, and layered them together with a silver brad.

Next, I stamped the verse from Something Within onto a scrap of Whisper White using Real Red ink, and distressed the edges. I matted it with Taken with Teal CS, and cut another panel of TwT, and tore a panel of one of the fabrics, then built the card using Jen's Sketch For You To Try from this weekend on an A2-sized base of Kraft CS.

Hope you have a wonderful day, a very Happy Valentine's Day, and a great weekend!
