MC Mar/11 - Lace Flowers - Leave Room

The material on this card is to die for. It's a $30.00 a meter Dupioni silk in a golden color that has a green tint to it. It's got natural threads running through it giving it a beautiful nubby texture. Luckily it was on special and I only bought a 1/2 meter, so was very reasonable and I have lots left over. BIG GRIN.

I was in a lace buying mood today. While in the fabric store I bought a whole pile of lace, some Duipure type, some eyelet type, several Organdy types and a few others... I was even in a sewing mood too. The lace flowers were sewn with a basting stitch then gathered to create the rosettes and the flowers sewn to the card. Sheesh.

They're also a new technique type flower for me as is the fabric adhered with Heat 'n Bond. You'll be seeing lots more of this stuff in the near future.

I'm using a Quietfire Design rubber stamp - love that stamp.

Click on card to see more details and stuff. Enjoy

And it fits for a whole bunch of challenges.
