Felt Flowers--I can make them!

Click HERE if you're looking for my DeNami Design Pretty Pastels post.

I was intrigued with Ashley's video for PTI MIM this week HERE.  She used border dies to cut strips of felt that she just rolled into little flowers.  I love flowers, but have been less than successful in making my own.  However, these looked really easy--& they were!  I only have some cheap, craft felt & even it worked.  Mine was white, so I sprayed it with Tattered Angels.  The ones on my card are Turquoise Blue & I have others ready to use on another project.  The only border die I have is Tim Holtz Brackets & both designs worked.  The background dies are PTI Layerz Mat Stack 3 & Mega Mat Stack 3.  The circle & scallop circle are Spellbinders.  When I visited Dana's blog today for the hop, I learned of a challenge called 365 Cards HERE & I think this will qualify for Day 81 Sunday Sketch. Thanks for stopping by--I alway appreciate it.
