the play date cafe, the inspiration colors are plum, fuchsia and wisteria.
the panel on this greeting card is made from thin hand-dyed fabric that had been torn into ribbon strips. the fabric has a little velvet and some metallic thread running through it. i fused the strips to a piece of clear organza with lightweight fusible interfacing.
the background is a textured tissue paper called maruyama. i embellished the card with buttons and some trumpet and seed beads strung on a thin wire.
