Another felt flower inspired card

I have been itching to do some more felting since I got my Janome Embellisher machine out of the cupboard last week........Sooooo.............The CAS-tastic challenge this week allows us to CASE one of the design teams cards.





I have chosen Deb Neerman's lovely bold flower. It is made out of material so this is where I got the idea ( excuse) to use felt. I have decided to stick with kraft as the base card (improvising here - It was a folder in a previous life)
Each petal was felted individually and then handsewn together to create the flower. Finished it of with a button from my precious button tin and a heart pin that I bought from the last SECC craft fair and have been waiting to find a use for.

I considered using one of my MS punches but found some cotton broderie anglaise border which fitted in with the material theme. As you can see, I got the sewing machine out too.

What a wonderful card that you've made after being inspired by Deb's! Love your color choices and the addition of the pin! Fantastic!

So lovely, really sweet and the pin finishes perfectly. Have you actually made the felt? If so I'm really impressed. Have a great weekend:) xx

WoWzA, I love your take on my card!!! So beautiful ... and that flower is stunning! Thanks so much for playing along and CASE'ing my card!

PS: My flower is made out of vintage dressmaker's pattern paper ... like tissue paper. Sending hugs!
