My Favorite Things.....Felt Flowers

As most of you know about me, I love to create with wool felt.  I often times use it to create felt flowers.  One of my favorite company's dies to use for this is My Favorite Things/Die-Namics.  I have several of their flower die-cuts including the one I used on this card.  I used the sweet sketch found on the My Favorite Things Blog this week.  Here's a peek at the sketch I followed when designing my card:
I used part of a bridal shower invitation (as the backdrop of my card) and added the chipboard shaker element, sequins, wool felt flowers cut with a My Favorite Things floral die, clear buttons, gold metallic baker's twine, lace snippets, some ephemera, and a chipboard sentiment (love).
After I cut the rolled flowers from black wool felt, I carefully rolled them into the sweet flowers you see.  I added a small snippet of lace (scraps) into the centers of the flowers and tied some gold metallic string into the centers of some sweet clear (glass-looking) buttons as an accent in the middle of each flower.  Here's a closer look:
If you'd like to play along in any of these challenges, just follow my colored highlighted links and play along.  I know these fabulous blogs would love having you all share your sweet creations in their challenges.  I know I sure enjoyed it!
