More is Better

Our challenge to you this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card with lots of embellishments so we are calling it MORE IS BETTER.  This isn't the time to do anything clean and simple.

I suppose I could have added more to this card but when I got to this point, I decided I liked it and was going to stop.  I created the flower with some lining fabric and this time I used a candle to melt the edges and I had more control over it so no burning.  I also started with squares rather than circles and I found that easier too.  The lace leaves have been cut from some old lace that came from my husband's late Aunt's sewing basket.  The curly brown ribbon is actually seam binding and I discovered I could make it crinkly even though I wasn't dyeing it myself.

I am on my way back from our road trip today and next week I can tell you what we did and what we saw.
