Little Dreamer !
Well finally I got around to using the image to make it into a card.
I have had some fabric quarters sitting on my window shelf looking pretty for many months now...but the red gingham one really caught my eye and was begging to be used up :))
So I made a black card blank and then cut my gingham square just a little smaller than my card base. I stitched it to the card and then frayed the edges a little, so that it actually looked like fabric. I have to say that stitching fabric was way harder than paper! Sounds silly ...but it moves about a whole lot more and is stretchier...so I found it much harder to keep a straight line....so therefore the card has a VERY homemade feel about it now!
here, and mounted it onto black cardstock and machine stitched the layers together. (much easier this time just stitching the card!).
The flowers are from my stash and the sparkly brads I have had for years! The sentiment is included with the 'Little Dreamer' set from The Greeting Farm, available from Quixotic Paperie. You canfind the heart pins here.
This card will be available in my Etsy shop later today!
Thank you all for your kind comments. they are very much appreciated :)
