Friend

Ashley's PTI MIM video really inspired me!  I would never have thought to use felt for a pinwheel, but I loved hers so had to make a second card.  I don't have a border die that was the right design for the trim, so I used Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle & then cut the scalloped edges with my scissors.  I got heavy handed with the glue & some bled through.  Not to worry--gems to the rescue!  The center is MFT mini rolled rose--I do so love that die, especially used with felt.  Finally cut a piece of the dowel I bought for crafting years ago & covered it with brown silk ribbon.  The wonderful sentiment is from PTI Floral Foliage & is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. The dry embossing folder is by Tim Holtz.  I'm also entering the challenge at A Passion for Papertrey since there are 2 fonts. Thanks for taking time to come by--I know you have a lot of choices & I so much appreciate your comments.
Hope you'll consider helping me celebrate the start of my second year blogging by entering my challenge.  All the details are here & there's still plenty of time since it doesn't end until March 10.
