12 Tags of 2015 / Holiday Card Series - February Inspiration

Hello friends! I loved the tag from February! The layering of the background, the stitching on the felt star and the flash card brings a nostalgic feel to this card. Ephemera can be an easy way to create a patchwork for the base of our project.

12 Tags Holiday Card Series #9
I made this card while on a visit to a friends house (Paula Cheney) and used her sewing machine. I guess it's like using someone else's tools that your not familiar with. We laughed so hard…and I don't think my sewing is very good but it definitely adds charter to the card.
