Thank You Card with a Family Baked Dinner!

I have only used fabric once before on a card and it was quite a challenge to think what to do for my card this week. I recently went thru my daughters wardrobe and anything she won’t wear or is too small I popped in bags under the house and plan to take it to the Op Shop. I dug through the bags and found a brand new dress she refused to wear and used my Stampin Up Top Note Die to cut the fabric and a Sizzix Hearts Die to cut some old denim shorts of hubby’s for the heart. Hubby nearly had a heart attack at the chopped up shorts until he realised they were the one’s that were too small for him now!! I used my fingernails to pull at the edges of my fabrics to fray the fabric for a Shabby Chic effect.I used a paper pad I received Free with Australian Simply Cards Magazine recently, the paper is from Webster’s Pages Petite Papers-Collection Combo Pack. It’s great when you can use pre colour coordinated  papers and the card comes together that much easier, I really love this script paper in the background. I borrowed a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die from a girlfriend at my group day last week and it’s such a pretty flower.  I used an image from Milk Coffee called I Love you Mom. There’s nothing like a family roast dinner to warm your heart!
