Weird or Wonderful?

Shopping Our Stash has a great challenge this week: Strangest or Weirdest Craft Supply Purchase.
It didn't take me long to decide what to use! To celebrate my retirement last September, I planned a 3-week vacation to visit family back east. While there, I discovered a sweet scrapbook shop in Amish country where there was a whole wall of small pieces of fabric for sale. The idea was to cut out parts of the fabric and stick it onto special cardstock with a sticky-side and use it on greeting cards. I was swept away with the pretty fabric and awesome examples of cards. So, of course, I had to purchase some Christmas fabric and sticky-paper. Upon my return home, the supplies were carefully stored in my craft room and never used. If anyone has seen this technique shared on the Internet, please let me know!
The red strip with holly is the fabric.

Red CS: Bazzill
Green DSP: Paper Cellar
Sentiment: pre-stamped from my LSS
Ornaments: my stash
Fabric: ?
Sticky Paper: MACtac
