Die Cut Flowers, Felt and Fun

I just LOVE all things Papertrey Ink and today I made this little card based on their Make it Monday tutorial that you can read all about, and enter, here on Nichole Heady's Blog where you were able to pick from several different color themes.  Here is the color inspiration I chose for my card.

I used Papertrey Ink's gorgeous wool felt in Fine Linen, Aqua Mist, and Berry Sorbet for the flowers mixed with MME papers.  I cut them using Papertrey Ink flower die cuts.  I used the Simply Chartreuse PTI wool felt for the leaves, which i also cut with a PTI die cut.  I used PTI Hawaiian Shores buttons, along with some other vintage buttons.  I made the heart border using another PTI die.  I love ALL their stuff and wish I could own every single thing they make.

I also used MME patterned papers, more PTI products, DMC floss, machine sewing, Jenni Bowlin gem button, and pink tulle. 
Here is a list of the challenges I'm entering with this card.

I think that about covers it.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm just hanging out on the couch trying not to think about my foot.  It sure looks awful.  I will be SO glad when it's healed.  But for now, I just keep praising God for helping me to get through this ordeal.  Crafting really helps keep my mind off the pain.
Have a blessed day.
