365 Cards Day 195 ~ Fringe Binge

Today's challenge is all about loading your card up with fringe (or the closest thing you have to it).  If you don't have fringe, get creative and get as close as you can to it - and don't skimp on it ;-)

Made this card using this really nice September sketch from The Craft's Meow
which I found through Iwona Palamountain's blog.

It was really enjoyable making this card which I started without the fringe.
I have always loved the brown tones, from the lightest cream to the darkest brown,
and set that as the tone for the card.
The polka dotted ribbon is to match the Sizzix Polka Dot embossing.
The dark brown ribbon is double-bow tied.
The tassel fringe was gotten in desperation from a nearby haberdashery.
For a 3D effect, I layered 4 Spellbinders butterflies and propped the wings up.
Sentiment is Hero Arts stamp.
