I actually have 2 cards for you this week. My first card uses products from Pizzazz Aplenty. They have loads of great embellishments at very reasonable prices. The cranberry twine, cranberry flatback pearls and charm are all from there.

The flower is handmade and I will hopefully be getting a tutorial up for it soon. I colored white fabric with my ProMarkers to get the colors I wanted.
