Go Green!!

Since I didn't plan to go anywhere today, I decided to do one more project for the Hero Arts challenge. And since I wanted to make a card, I hopped around and to see what other challenges I can combine with. I love to combine them! Like I said, TIME MANAGEMENT. :) Anyway, this card is for a few challenges:
Hero Arts: re-purposed/recycled materials
Stamps and Smiles: the sketch
Charisma Cardz: Flower, lace and pearl
Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Bling-bling/glitter
High Hopes Stamps: pink and brown

Here is what I did with this card. I sewed the fabric scrap onto the brown card. For the the flower, I used the tissue paper Jennifer Meyer sent me. :) She used it to wrap the clear stamp I won doing the blog hop. Thanks again, Jennifer!!! I kept it because it was so pretty! I cut the tissue paper into long two inches wide strips and folded it a few times. I then cut hearts from it. For each heart, I used brown chalk ink for the edge, along with pink glitter pen. I want it to sparkle. :) Then I layer each heart so that it turns into a flower. I punched a pink flower for the center and then added the pink button. Once I was done with that, I added a few pearls to the flower pedals. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory.

Supplies: fabric scrap, gems, pearls, buttons, thread, tissue paper, cardstock, ribbon, tag, lace, Hero Arts sentiment, Autumn Leaves swirl clear stamp
Tools: sewing machine, Martha Stewart lace border punch, flower punch
