A Cut Above - Other than Paper, part 1

I love the topic of day 5 because it focuses on die cutting materials that are not paper or card stock.  I've always loved doing this.   As an Architect and Interior Designer I have access to all sorts of fun finishes from large paint samples to upholstery fabric and wall covering so I'm always on the look out for something I can die cut and use for my cards.  In fact my very first upcoming published card that will be published in the Sept./October 2012 Paper Crafts magazine has a die cut that I cut with something other than paper, but I'm not giving away what it is.    Anyway, I did two cards for this topic.  In the first one I used a really cool retro vinyl upholstery fabric in white.  I can imagine this on some retro 60's chair.   It's difficult to see in the photo and looks like paper, but it's not.  I'll post a photo of the fabric because it's easier to see what I used.  
Here's my card:

and here's the vinyl fabric:
