The Play Date Cafe Challenge 48

Hello Monday!  Over the weekend I had a chance to work on the challenge over at the Play Date Cafe.  The challenge this week is to use the colors purple, green, and gray to create a project inspired by the photo.  This photo looks like a real modern space, and I wanted my card to reflect the modern feel.  I tried to keep the design of my card simple.  I wanted to to try out some fabric yo-yo flowers and found a gray satin at my local fabric shop.  I used a circle die to cut the fabric and fray-checked the edges.  I used a straight stitch to sew around the edge and then gathered the thread.  After flattening the circle I added a rhinestone brad. 

Thanks for stopping by,
