Another Birthday Card

My MFT wishlist is getting pretty long, so decided I better get back to entering the MFT challenges for a chance at a gift certificate!  I was able to combine the current Sketch Challenge & Color Challenge plus I'm entering SSS Wednesday, AAA Cards, Dies R Us, The Playground (not playing for the prize) & Twofers.
I happen to have Blu Raspberry felt, so was determined to use it for one of my elements which turned out to be a flower using MFT Prima Donna Petals dies.  MFT Dizzy Doily was cut from cardstock close in color to Persimmon & I used some sticker dots for the Coral Crush. Prima Donna Petals leaves were cut from vellum & then dry embossed.  One of my newest MFT stamp sets is Totally Happy & I opened it to use the Birthday sentiment which I stamped in Memento Gray Flannel 3 times using my Mini MISTI.  The white strip down the side was brushed with MFT Glitter Glaze--gives a beautiful, subtle shine & sparkle. 
We had a great day with hubby's daughter & her husband yesterday.  Fritz was really good--liked getting more attention!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  6. A lovely, elegant card. I've never managed to die cut felt successfully, there must be a knack to it which you have and I don't! Thank you for sharing with us at Twofers
