Take care

Hey Everyone! How is it going? Here is a card using patterned {paper} that I have had for a few months. It is KI Memories Elsie collection and is really fabric that is backed on self-adhesive paper. When I removed a corner, it didn't seem to have adhesive on the fabric, so not sure about that! I kept the backing on to maintain the fabric's stiffness and used foam adhesive for dimension. I also used some ribbon in my stash I rarely pull out and I was so happy to use 'old' stuff! Another oldie, but newbie to me is my Stampin' Up! Autumn Days set. I think that is a quail, but anyway, I stamped it on Bermuda Bay to make it a little different. I love all kinds of birds on my cards (owls too)!! (ETA: Correction - it's a pheasant! Thanks ladies! I knew it was something else, but couldn't recall the name of it) The ironic thing is that I am not a bird watcher or anything! I used some Kaiser rhinestones and really like this color. I hope PTI carries this blue hue soon! HINT HINT!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday EVE!! Hey, I gotta look on the bright side!

Great card, (it is a pheasant!)I like how his color matches the rhinestones.
I really need to get a swiss dot embossing folder, I really love how that looks on cards!

OMG get out of here i love the colors!!!! you made that stamped image look so chic!! i've always wanted fabric paper didnt know they made that before. Like Amy Butler fabric 12x12 or 8.5x11 sheets that are stiff enough for cards and layouts. oh how perfect would that be??
