Fabric and fibers @ Dilly Beans

Well, the calendar says it's Friday, but I'm still a bit off this week.

The Friday challenge at Dilly Beans is
fabric and fibers.
This was a challenge for me since I don't have much in the
way of fabric or notions in my crafting stash.
I knew I had some wall paper samples that were made of fabric,
but didn't find those until last night by accident. Too late.

I chose a sweet image for this week's challenge.
This is image #426 Hello Friend.
I colored the image to match the paper this time.
Very matchy-matchy for me.   

Here is proof that there actually is fabric on here somewhere.
I used a scrap of some fabric/paper I received in a scrap pack
I bought years ago. I frayed the edges to make it appear to be
more on the fabric side than the paper. I also frayed the ends
of my bow, but not sure if it just looks unintentional and messy.
I did add a bunch of glitter to make it all sparkly and to
distract from the wonky fabric I used.
Glitter fixes nearly everything. 

Fun challenge this week. Pushed me right out of my comfort zone.
Isn't that why it's called a challenge in the first place?
If you want to see more inspiration for this challenge, stop by the
to see what the rest of the DT fabricated.
There is also a new
that caters to clean and simple card designs, tutorials and 
inspirational ideas for your next project.
Check it out!  


  1. HeeHee! I always get a kick seeing your softer side and that frayed fabric kinda tickles. Love it! xxD

  2. Gorgeous, there really is a girly girl kicking and screaming to get out of the dungeon hehe. xx

  3. OMG too funny, was coming to say what Donna said - that I always get a kick out of seeing sugary sweetness on your page! But you rock that, too, girl. :) xo

  4. I love the glitter and the fabric! Your image is perfectly colored, too!

  5. It is always fun to come see what you have done. First the vile vintage box with all its eery elements and then here we have this totally cutesy, glittery, bright and happy card! I love that you do things on totally opposite ends of the spectrum - you do both so well. This is seriously cute and I adore the colors and glitter.
