JAS Challenge Use Ribbon & Bling

At Just a Scrappin' this week, the challenge is to use fabric and/or ribbon, plus a little bling. Here is my project-



This card is the result of some Mary Engelbreit fabric scaps that I had.  I cut the image out with enough fabric to fringe the edges. I layered the fabric onto some light aqua cardstock, which was then layered onto black cardstock, and finally onto the aqua & white checked paper. The edges of the papers were distressed first to match the distressed edges of the fabric. For my bling I chose black pearls in the lower right hand corner.

And if you follow the blog Moxie Fab World, you know that Cath Evaldson is stepping down from MFW. I can't tell you how much I've learned from her blog, the challenges, and her inspirational pictures. This card is a tribute to her. I'm not really that good at cardmaking, but I try hard! I hope it's worthy enought to send her off in life's newest adventure for her.
