Fabric Brad and Window Card

Thanks to the prompt from CREATE Blog, this week's challenge is to make cards with Fabric Brad.  After looking all over my big stash of brads, I realized that I do NOT have any fabric brads! So what's a girl to do? MAKE one, of course! I simply took a larger size brad and wrap the fabric flower that I had been saving (like forever). I wrapped the fabric flower around the brad and glued/secured it with Glossy Accent--Voila!
Here's the card. I used (my one and only) Maya Road stamps
wishing you well
The ribbons was sent to me from the super talented and sweetest Donna in Hawaii. I used double-sided tape to adhere the ribbons as they are so pliable! The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. Here is the feature in CREATE Blog.
 For the week's challenge,  it is to create a card with wood grain.
Here's my take. I also added an extra element for this fall card--window!
I miss u

I punched out a circle in the wood grain and I used the Dymo tape for the sentiment. As you can see from the color scheme of these two cards, Fall is here!

Your work is always so beautiful! Always an inspiration! How do you stamp in two different colors without mixing the colors as you did on the leaf stamp in the first card?
Thanks so much!

I love the custom brad from the first card, and how you paired it with a scalloped circle of the same material. Makes a beautiful flower!

Two beautiful cards, Virginia! That crafted brad/flower is way better than any premade one, I think. And your owl card has such a rustic yet whimsical feel!
