Cute Card Thursday

This week's challenge is...

Soft Furnishings

This week the theme for the challenge is
Soft Furnishings
you can use
fabric, ribbon, stitching, buttons etc, anything you can find on the soft
furnishings in the home ie curtains, cushions, sofas etc.

You can't really tell straight away , my "soft furnishings" bit on my card, but it's the blue and green background behind the images. It is two pieces of material. I layered them onto some patterned paper and stitched around them with a yellow zig zag stitch. All the papers I've used are from Stampin Up.
Now all the images are from Alota stamps, the cow and the sentiment are from a unmounted set called Molly Moo. The wishing well can be found here and the bug, Keelie on cloud can be found here. All the images have been coloured with promarkers. I then just added some little gems and some photo corners.

Stamps:- Alota
Papers:- Stampin Up designer papers - Petals & Paisleys
Photo corners:- Ellison thin cuts

This week one lucky random winner will win 2 stamps from Alota that Helene kindly donated to me for blog candy. They are the couch and the window. These two stamps work really well with any stamps you already have ie. Magnolias, Hanglars etc. Why not have a go at this week's challenge? I'd love to see all your soft furnishing cards.

You can find all the details here
