Weave Card

I have seen people adding weaved papers to their cards and thought it was time for me to have a try.  This is such a wonderful way to clear out some papers from your scrap box.
So I started with a white base card, then a layer of white card which I stitched around the edge of with my sewing machine.  Then I picked out some scraps of paper and cut a pennant shape in each end of most of the strips and then weaved away.  Finished with three red flowers layered up and some lovely suede like leaves that I have in my stash.  At the bottom of the card I added a Happy Birthday sticker.

This card was also created as Design Team card for Unstampabelles.  We are now halfway through our July CELEBRATIONS challenge and seeing some wonderful entries.  We just wanted to keep you inspired so that you take the chance to enter and be in the running for our two prizes this month.  Remember we also have blog candy to be won by one lucky follower who leaves a comment as to what was their favourite post over the past year.
