Limelight Project Parade-April

Fabric is all the rage these days. I love it, how could I not. I'm developing a love for it like designer paper. The patterns and colors are amazing. And now many popular designer paper companies are coming out with their own lines of fabric-ahhhh it's a crafter's dream. I was thrilled when Mandy sent us our April Project assignment-use Fabric. While I had many great ideas float through my head, there were many I couldn't tackle because I DON'T sew. Well, on fabric, anyway. Paper, yeah, I can do that. Last month I had so much fun making my own coordinating flower embellishments, I thought, a batch of cute butterflies and vintage fabric flowers (thanks to Julie Campbell's easy tutorial!) would be even better! Here's what I accomplished.
Crystal and I went on an Archiver's Shopping spree and we both scored some super cute fabric. Today I used some of the Rileyblakedesigns fabric that Archiver's sells. And, Ummmmm, now I know why I loved this-on their site it says it's from My Mind's Eye, Bloom and Grow line. I used my SU Beautiful Butterfly die and tied on some Basic Grey buttons with brown burlap string. The little flowers were finished off with a coordinating Kaiser rhinestone! And, now here's a card I made to show these fun butterflies in action. I sewed on some PinkPaisled dp (LOVE this print!!!) and it looked so good with my fabric. I also added a fabric Ric Rac boarder (thanks, Becky!) to the Could I Be Any Cuter? flower panel! Sentiment comes from the same set, I just inked up part of the Hello sentiment with a marker.

Lots of way to use fabric, just think of it like paper! I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT did with fabric. Come follow me to see!
