April Challenge - The Craft Garden

Full challenge details can be found Here 

The challenge this month is a recipe.  Choose three of the following ingredients and include them in your project: Ribbon, 4 Buttons, Ink or mist, Floral Patterned Paper, Stencil, Paperclip, Green.
I made this A5 card using various ingredients from the recipe above (buttons, patterned paper, green, paperclip, ribbon). 
My flowers were made from a white t shirt my son discarded. I cut the flower, leaves and grass out of the fabric before I coloured it.  I made a solution of SoSoft fabric paint and water in an old container and soaked the fabric in it. Once dried I added the details with stitching.
I tore some patterned paper stuck it onto the card, added faux stitching before finishing off with embellishments. 


  1. Great card, love the recycling of an old T-shirt!
