When I looked at the Pals Paper Arts challenge this morning at 6:30 am, all I remembered was “use fabric or ribbon”----I totally forgot it was supposed to be clean & simple!  Oh well, I hope they don’t eliminate me like on Dancing with the Stars!!!  I wanted to make  a special birthday card for a special friend and I was determined to use this Blueberry Crisp DP that I just had to have, and was basically sitting unused in my bin!  I grabbed some leftover satin from my DD’s wedding gown and made a flower—so that qualifies for my fabric.   Here you go:


But I would not say this was clean & simple!  “Out there” would be more like it!  Anyway, I hope my friend likes it!  There is some glitter on one heart along with some other embellishments:
