Fabric Ruffle & Flower & WOYWW

I have lots of fabric left over from when I used to make my purse organizers (pic below) and wondered how a fabric ruffle would look on a card instead of  paper one, so I gave it a try with this card and also made a flower with the same fabric.  I thought it turned out pretty good, although the flower is a little too big for this card.
To cut down on the sewing, I used my pinking shears to cut a strip of fabric about 1.5 inches wide, then stitched along one side and gathered it till it was the  length I needed.  Then I took a strip of white c/s scored it down the centre & wrapped it over the top and used double sided tape to stick it down on the front and back.  I then added a couple of strips of narrow ribbon.  It is sparkly, but of course it didn't show in the picture.  For the flower I did the same thing, but used a slightly narrower piece of fabric, gathered it tight, sewed the two edges together, then stuck a c/s circle to the back and finally added the button to the centre. The leaves I cut out with my pinking shears from some very textured c/s.

Here's a couple of my organizers

Now for WOYWW

At the far end of the table you can see my very sophisticated (not) set-up for taking my pictures.  Here's a better view of it.  I use an Ott lamp and no flash.  My camera is a little Canon PowerShot SD 1400 digital. 

 Hope you are all having a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by.

I rarely put my card on my blog because I have so few readers and none of them would be interested. But this is where I come for ideas and inspiration.
