So Sweet of You


This morning, I was able to play in Becky's Compose a Card Challenge.  The funny thing is, the challenge called for black wool felt and I didn't have any!  So, I found some felt flowers in my stash.  They were pink and orange, so I took one and used my Black Copic marker to make it black!  So, there's my black felt!  LOL  I used the Signature Greetings set from Papertrey Ink as well as a flower stem from Garden of Life.  The buttons are also from Papertrey Ink.  I added some faux stitching around the focal panel to ground it a little more.  Finally, a little ribbon around the stem finished it off! 

If you get a chance, play along!  The challenge is a lot of fun. . .and it's a lot of fun to see what each person does with the same card "recipe"!  The cards all look so different!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Signature Greetings, Garden of Life (PTI); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Bitty Dot Basics, Cream, Spring Rain (PTI);  Accessories- buttons (PTI), flower (SU), ribbon (Darice), black pen, paper piercer;  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
