Felt So Good

I have a terrible pun for my header today! It's because I have used felt on my card and this line just popped into my head and I went with it! Sorry about that, LOL!

Anyways, this card was inspired by (a) seeing that Bec's Creatalicious challenge this month is pink, green and brown, (b) wanting to use Blushing Bride and (c) having bought this dark dusky pink felt. Here's my creation:

I used Bella Toile on the background, my Square Lattice embossing folder for the foreground piece and Perfect Punches set for the sentiment. The felt flower is made on my Big Shot with the Floral Fusion die and put together with this ginormous pearl brad I found at my local arts and crafts store, and the greenery is Pear Pizzazz made with the Little Leaves die. The brown is Early Espresso, which I didn't think I would like but am loving in spite of it's name!!! A very simple card with plenty of texture. Hope you like it.

Thanks for calling in.
