Hello

I've told you I'm slow getting into trends.  I don't suppose felt is considered trendy now, but when I first started seeing it used in my magazines I really didn't like it.  
PrintFinally decided it would be good for winter cards (snowflakes, trees) & now would you believe I have a pretty large collection of MFT felt which I often use for flowers & leaves as with today's card for the MFT Color Palette Challenge  & Freshly Made Sketches.  
used MFT dies: Dizzy Doily & Hibiscus along with the Tag You're It & Peaceful Wildflowers stamp sets.  My kraft panel is the debossed side using a Cuttlebug folder.  I attached the 2 flowers to each other with foam tape & added a yellow pearl to the center.  
I'll also add this to SSS Wednesday pearl challenge. Thanks so much for taking time to check my card.

  1. LOVE that blue flower and this pretty card, Greta! I'm with you on the trendy situation. I still don't like the chalkboard stuff and probably will never do anything using it. Guess I'm just an OLD stick in the mud. LOL

  13. I have to admit that I was quite skeptical about felt myself. I really like what you've done with it here. It definitely has a place in the paper crafting world. Very nice card!

  21. I think you work magic with felt, so even if it is or isn't a 'trend', in your hands it will always be showcased beautifully. Your flower cluster here is evidence of this! Gorgeous!! Hugs~c
