Experiments in Fabric

I thought I was making my card based on Card Patterns sketch #70 (I had seen the sketch only once)......but it turns out that I have mixed up sketches #69 and # 70...........anyway I had fun making it......
I have been thinking about using some kind of fabric in my cards lately, and yesterday I finally got hold of some fabric scraps (from my sister who has an abundance of these as she designs her own outfits).
The background and the flowers are made from a traditional Indian cotton fabric known as Kalamkaari.......
Thanks for visiting!
