Found Objects

I love the way this card turned out!  It was another for the timed challenges on National Card Making Day (PWMB).  This challenge was to use a found object from around the house.  My "found objects" were pink and purple sheer fabric that came on a couple of bouquets I was given.

Background: The background is a flocked paper from HOTP.

Focal: The focal was cut from cardstock with a Spellbinders die from their Card Creators "Stationary" die set.  This was covered with the sheer fabric - purple on top of the pink - only adhereing it with tape on the back.  As I taped it to the card stock, I pulled it gently taut - which meant the fabric floated a little bit above the card stock in the center. 

Finishing the Focal: Dazzles finished off the focal - the silver jewel border, the cupcake, and the sentiment - all are from various Dazzles sticker sets.  Because the fabric floats on top of the card stock, you get a really neat 3-D look for the sentiment.
