for lots of ideas go and have a look at what the rest of the DT have come up with
some brilliant ideas

as for my card above
i made the main mat by covering a 6x6 piece of card with double sided adhesive film layed over that some raffia that i have had for years
edged top and botton edge with ribbon then the main image is a fabric flower topped with paper flower with small flowers dotted about. the sentiment is also matted on a piece of card covered in raffia
ribbon bow added to the side

have fun

You really nailed the use of fabric on this card Gill, have to say I'm relieved I gave this one a swerve but all the DT cards are fantastic!
