Just Because - A Fabric Flower Card

I am so excited to share this card with you today!  For reals!  It's way cute and I love the way it came out and it makes me SOOOO happy!

Just Because - Fabric Flower Card

I created the flowers from strips of torn fabric.  Why torn, you ask?  Oh, I'm SO glad you did!  I tore it so that the edges would be a bit frayed lending a bit of a vintage, worn feel even though the fabric is bright and full of vibrant color!  Good plan, huh?  Yup.  I thought so, too!

I added some fun pretties throughout the entire design of the card to bring it all together.

Just Because Sentiment


I went with the Just Because sentiment per Jen's death-threat-sprinkled demands suggestion.  I kind of love it.  It lets me choose to give this fabulousness to any sweet soul I choose!  I surrounded it with sparkly glitter happiness because, well, you know.  I love glitter.  Lots.  Just say'n.

Fabric Flowers

And just LOOK at those crown jewels!  Ummm...I mean flowers.  But, seriously, you can't even begin to tell me that those aren't simply amazingly fabulous.  You can't.  Don't try.  HA!  See the bits of frayed action going on in there?  LOVE THAT!  And I love the fun buttons that finish them off, too.  Basically, I'm mildly obsessed with these flowers and have now used them in lots of different ways and I am bound and determined to do it again!!!  (There may be tiny ones coming in the future for a certain doll....just say'n.).

So now you can see why I was so excited about this one, right? Right. 'Cause it is complete and utter cuteness at it's finest, if I do say so myself! I love it. It makes me happy.
