Hello with more felt flowers

Hard to believe I wasn't fond of using felt on cards when I first saw it in stamping magazines. Eventually I decided it would be OK for winter cards with snowflakes & now look at me!  I have quite a few felt colors from MFT & if they had more I'd probably buy them. Floral dies used with felt have won me over big time! Today's card is for Mojo Monday & I challenged myself to use some printed paper & Washi tape--2 things I find very difficult for some reason.  I used 2 papers from an Authentique pad given to me by a blogging friend. The soft yellow print had a black & white strip at the top & bottom which gave me the idea to use my black & white Washi tape. The white cardstock was sponged with antique linen to soften it & I cut the circle frame with Spellbinders. The other dies are MFT Prima Donna Petals, Fishtail Flags & Leaf-Filled Flourish.  The stamping is done with Brilliance Graphite Black using Hello from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers & the heart (second generation) from MFT On the Line.  Pink & black is another favorite color combo & I do like how this card turned out.  Not flat for mailing, but sometimes you gotta have bumps--LOL!  I'm also entering SSS Monday (A is for Authentique), SSS Wednesday (Spring Flowers) & Die Cut Divas (In the Garden). Thanks so much for stopping by.  Edited to add: Also entering Anything Goes at Loves Rubberstamps.
