In all things of nature...FTTC#75

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC75)! This week Betty Wright is our challenge host. Betty is challenging us to use felt! Felt is everywhere right now in the crafting world. It is easier to use than ever with all of the wonderful die cuts available. You can create flowers, borders, accents, and so much more! We would love to see what you create using felt!

I think I've mentioned that I love sentiment stamps. Maybe once. Or twice. Anyway, I'm loving the sentiments in this set by Flourishes, called Life Lines. Isn't that font gorgeous!? Since I wanted it to definitely be the focal image, I kept my layout simple and used my paper and embellishments to complement the theme--nature. The patterned paper is from a Memory Box collection called Jubilee, and the sentiment and card base are Classic White card stock. I cut my felt flower out with my Dahlia Nestabilities dies and did a little sewing on them--they looked a little blah just stacked up. I hand cut the leaves from more felt and added a sweet little button for the center. A strip of pleated and stitched ribbon and some Basic Grey pearls finished it off.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to go see what my team mates are doing with felt today! I hope you'll play along with us!
