I always like to "give it the old college try" as they say. I followed the tutorial once again at Make it Monday - The Paper Try Ink Inspired Blog. They had a tutorial on making flowers out of leave die cuts. I made my flowers using a PTI leave die cut and used some vintage wool felt I got from a sweet, elderly, crafty woman at a quaint boutique in Northern Minnesota. I put a Recollections brad in the center, and stamped a little PTI sentiment stamp. It is one of the simplest cards I've made in a long time. But like I said, I always like to give it an effort so that I can enter their awesome giveaway of a $25 PTI gift certificate. Cross my fingers AND my toes, right?
Here is a link to their Make it Monday Challenge:

And here is my simple card:
I'm also entering it in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp since I used my favorite tool, my Cuttlebug and die cuts, to make it:

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to get a fill at my favorite Nail Salon. Hope you all have a great day!
