Well, I was thrilled, to say the least, when Rebecca Ednie contacted me to see if I would be interested in joining Our Creative Corner today as their Guest Designer!! Thank you Rebecca!

The challenge today is to use fabric!! I definitely do not use fabric on my cards hardly at all.....but in order to MEET the challenge head-on, I dug out some red polka dot fabric I have had for eons - yes eons!!, and proceeded to make one of those rolled up flowers that everyone has been making!

I just ripped a strip of fabric and then, starting at the end, began to twirl it around my finger over and over again, much the same way as you would twirl your hair around your finger!!

Then I glued it to a Huge round pile of glue that I made with Tombow glue (can you say messy!!!) - this is where these Glubers would come in handy!! - Large Adhesive Dots - that you can use for these type of flowers!

My sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps set Rescue Remedy Additions and I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I added an orange Walmart button tied with twine and then adhered the flower to my cardbase where I used Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 patterned paper for my card base. I also added a Taylored Expressions Leafy Branch die cut with some Zva black bling attached to it.

Thank you girls for inviting me to play with you! It was totally a fun time!
