Dream in pink

Did you see how trendy is to use fabric on your crafts? I wanted to give it a try too and I glued shinny pink fabric (a scrap from a Halloween costume I made for my daughter a few years ago) to a piece of paper, once it was dry I used it like patterned paper. The fabric is great! looks like a hologram, changes colors, it´s so beautiful to the eye, so bad I can not put that onto a picture to show you...
I used Dream dragonfly from Michelle Perkett , I colored the image with colored pencils and added a rhinestone on the dragonfly´s head. Cut around the image and placed it on the card with foam tape.
A piece of lace, stitched pink glass seed beads and a scrap of pink paper finish the card. A simple card, I love how the colors go together and how the fabric shines!

I´m joining Michelle Perkett Studio challenge #44: stitch it up, Sundays with Crissy #9: sparkle and shine and Aly´s Sunday challenge #25: sparkle and glitter.

It doesn't look simple to me. I would take me all day to stitch those lovely beads. What a great take on our stitching challenge. The fabric is lovely. It shimmers so pretty. Your daughters costume must have been gorgeous.
