Tiddly Inks Challenge #3: Fabric

Hello there! It is a cold, windy Wednesday...I hear it is supposed to be 34 degrees Friday night. Good grief!
I have a card that combines 2 challenges today; I love it when I can do that! I see some people are able to combine many more than that; I'll have to work on it.... I used the sketch over at SCS and went to work. I had great plans to use fabric in my i-top brad maker, but I found that the Heidi Grace fabric I bought to go with my Heidi Grace paper didn't match. The fabric was much more vibrant. Then I thought of my PTI felt, but discovered that the Hawaiian Shores felt didn't match the Hawaiian Shores paper.... What a bummer! Then I checked the Dark Chocolate felt/paper and found it was not a good match either! Double bummer! I guess today was not my day! LOL
I decided to go with SU! Cool Caribbean since it matched the DP and also goes great with the felt. When SU! was retiring that color I bought a bunch because it is one of my very favorites; I do tend to hoard it though. The image is a digi; I am really liking the ability to resize the digis to your project. I colored her with Prismas and added some glitter to her wings. I used SU! felt flowers combined with the PTI felt and repurposed a green felt heart for the leaves. I like how this card turned out; the colors make me happy! Plus, if I get to use glitter that makes me happy too; I don't even mind the mess!

Just wanted to share a bit of happy news; DD tried out for flags with the marching band. She found out today she made it! Makes me remember H.S. (MANY years ago) when I was a flag and also played the bass drum in the marching band. Were any of you in the band? I'd love to hear about it!
Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your evening!

Oh, I love this! That image is so cute, and the blues and purples are great! Like the felt flowers too.

Cute, cute! The DP is so vibrant and combined with those perfect felt accents it has a kind of retro '70s feel!

I was never in the band; I chose to continue with piano lessons. It was still music, but I always envied the band camaraderie!

The colors are gorgeous on here. That is surprising to hear all the felt colors, and how they don't match. Maybe you can post pictures for me (for fun) to see. I, too, love the ability to resize digis. It can make "stamping" life easier, sometimes.
