Fanatical About Botanical Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

The botanical style is rrreally trendy right now... and Cath from The Moxie Fab World hosts a challenge!

Look: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2011/07/next-moxie-fab-world-challenge.html

I didn´t want to miss it (deadline is tomorrow/midnight) and so I made this card:


I attached a vellum pouch to the card front and inserted a skeleton leaf, which I had in my stash for ages - a butterfly image from the graphic´s fairy, rhinestones and a ticket from the stamp set "Eline´s Huis Butterflies" from mariannedesign.nl complete the card.

I really love this card - this light blue is one of my favourite colors - especially in summer - and butterflies are my all-time favourite!
AND - it is my 1st one with sewing/stitching on it!
I had a very old (35yrs.) sewing machine, but hadn´t used it for 20 yrs. ... when my aunt visited me a month ago, she helped me to "revitalize" it again - and now I don´t want to remove this machine from my desk anymore! I also love her "vintage style" :-)



Have a nice Sunday everyone - thanks for your visit!

  2. Uli, this is fantastic. I love the butterfly and with the leaf behind the blue vellum, it's gorgeous. You did a great job for not having sewed for so many years. I was thinking yesterday that I needed to use my vellum more. Hugs, dj

  6. I love this card too Ulina. The soft blue is almost an aqua, so soothing to look at. The leaf tucked away in your pouch with your butterfly sitting on top is precious. I love your sewing, it's so pretty in blue ... My first (and only) sewing machine was a singer too! This card is a keepsake!

  13. Ja, da hast du Glück mit so einer tollen Nähmaschine. Es passt immer wieder gut, um ein Kärtchen oder ein Lo zu verzieren. Deine Karte beweist es...Lg aus Wien von Gerlinde

  17. Hi :) Before I read the text, I looked at the pic and though, whoa, that is an old Singer! And yes it is. Looks good and does the works, that the main thing. I mean "does the works" bit.
    It is actually a bit funny how nice effect sewing gives. Vellum keeps the card "light" and it looks like butterfly is ready to fly.
    Thank you for sharing this and congrats for the Singer :)
