Invited to Tea

Happy Mother's Day! Last night I went to bed too late, but my mojo was working well and I had so much fun creating this card for the Moxie Fab World challenge "Three Cheers For Chairs"! I wanted to create a little shabby chic card with a comfy looking couch:


The stamps are Papertrey Ink, the gorgeous papers and pearls are Prima Marketing. I hand-dyed this seam binding and love it! You'll see lots of hand-dyed seam binding here in the future :)
The beautiful fabric covered button was made by Nina (Danke Dir nochmal dafür, ich hätt Dich gestern knutschen können weil der so toll gepasst hat!).

You have until Monday to enter the Moxie Fab World Challenge - have some fun with chairs!

I hope you have a great Sunday and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Can you give us some tips on hand dyeing the binding? And where to buy the binding? Have been searching for it, but no luck finding it yet! Your card is beautiful!

den Muttertag hab ich verpennt, hab's erst am Samstag erfahren... naja- meine Mutter verzeiht mir sicher...
Schöne Karte hast du da gemacht. Obwohl ich finde ein glattes Band hätte vielleicht besser gepasst (aber das ist ja nur meine Meinung) ich find die Karte trotzdem klasse. Ich hab auch gerade wieder mal auf einer Karte genäht, das macht soooo viel aus.
