Cleaning out the closet

So you know I love the Flower die cut - this one I made with old shirts! I was cleaning out my closet and enjoying the big pile of old, outgrown, or tacky clothes that I was getting rid of when I looked at the fabric that some of the clothes were made of. I snatched a few out of the pile and took them to the craft room. This flower is from a cotton shirt that never really fit right, and an eyelet skirt that I shouldn't have been wearing anyway. (Stacy and Clinton would have put me in the 360 and said some mean things!) All in all I think my clothing is better suited on the front of this card!

Stampun'Up! Flower Folds die cut

I love this die cut and will post several cards using these flowers! This card was a long time in the making because I really wanted to try a black card and couldn't find the right combo of colors and design to keep it 'happy'. I was working on getting cards together for a workshop and this combo fell into place! The flowers are cut out with cameo coral and vellum which was dry embossed with a swirly pattern. The Medallion stamp is embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock. I love the way this card popped when the polka dotted brad was added.
Yea for the happy black card!
