Language of Friendship

I saw a fun sketch on Sweet Sunday Sketches and decided to give it a whirl:

I changed it to a horizontal layout.  The "DSP" is actually sticky backed fabric.  I saw it at a craft store and my eyes were so dazzled by the beauty of the colors and patterns that I neglected to notice the label indicated it was sticky backed fabric and not paper!  Oops!  I still loved it so much I thought, why not.  It's not that easy to cut in my paper cutter.  The fabric tends to fray.   And when you go to lay it down, you  better be committed because once it's down, it's DOWN!  All in all, it is not nearly as easy to work with as paper.  But it does add a neat texture.  And I really am in love with the colors.  My card base is Soft Suede with a layer of Very Vanilla over that.  The flowers and bird are stamped in Soft Suede ink on Baja Breeze card stock and sponged with Soft Suede ink.  Other items used:  Language of Friendship stamp set, Apothecary Accents Framelits die, Bird Builder punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pac, Antique bass brads, dimensionals.

Here is another card I made with the same "fabric DSP".   I used Early Espresso cardstock, Scallop Edge Border punch, Floral Frames Framelits.  I did the "Faux Suede" technique on the flowers and sponged with Espresso ink.  Ribbon is non Stampin Up.
