Tomic challenge 33 dt

hi friends, we have a new challenge on TOMIC, a fabulous sketch with the addition of adding fabric, i sure hope you gonna come by and play.

I scratched my head for a while trying to decide how i was gonna incorporate the fabric into my card design, but i am quite pleased with the way it turned out.  I used Tulle wrapped around my xcut heart with a pearly ribbon slider and some cheesecloth on one of my layers on  my card so thats the fabric bit.
the darling image is one of the new ones from the "sweet crazy love collection" as is the one i used on the inside of my card.  The sentiment was a locally bought one that was kindly donated to me by my friend on the end of the continent in Cape Town, thanks Shazi.

i used one of my doohickey dies for the border and the leafy bit by my flowers.

I decided not to mat my image on another piec of cardstock thinking it would just get lost on everything else that was going on with this card, havent tried that before, just inked around the edges to give it a bit of a pop.

Ok folks thats it from me
see y"all soon
P.S: havent entered a challenge in ages so am gonna enter this into the challenge on Magnolia-licious highlights challenge where they are gearing up for valentines.
then there's the fabby challenge on 7 kids where love is in the air, hmmmm
