Serendipity Stamps Challenge #58 - Add Fabric

Are you a fan of Serendipity Stamps?  For sure you'll want to check out our monthly challenge!  It's a great way to get ideas - seeing projects made with stamps you might already own, and when you link up your design you just might win our prize!   One random player is selected to receive a $20 gift certificate from Serendipity Stamps

This month we're asking you to "add fabric" to your design.  That could be a swatch of burlap, a length of lace, or if you're feeling creative maybe you will stamp on linen, or die cut some fabric!  It's up to you - just make sure you include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (stamp or die) on your design.

I decided to make a baby card - for a boy this time... I'm usually going straight for the pinks for girls.  
For my fabric element I added a length of pretty lace to separate my pattern papers.  Normally I do this by adding a die cut border from solid card stock.  I have to admit that the lace takes this to a new level - making this very elegant and expensive looking. 
I added a few paper roses as embellishments.  I'm not worried about keeping this one flat because where there's babyies involved I'm usually visiting in person!  If it's a shower I want to wish the new mom well, and if I get a chance to visit a new born - bonus!  Who doesn't love to hold a baby!
I stamped the Baby Bib in a very soft blue pigment ink so it has a powdery look to it.  Pigment ink sits on the top of the paper - it doesn't sink into the paper so it has a different appearance.

The fabric lace is a beautiful touch to this already beautiful baby card! I love this baby stamp and had to have the wood block because I just think is adorable , so I set it out on a shelf. Love the many layers of this card!

I second Marybeth: the lace elevates your card from 'beautiful' to elegant and classy. Guaranteed new parents of a little boy would be thrilled to receive this; a work of art to be treasured! Your lovely layers...swooning!
