Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #41

This week on Speedy's Challenge.Geri challenged us to use SELF MADE FLOWERS. As you can tell, I did the rolled flowers in felt.  I am really liking the texture of felt on a card.  I also did something I haven't done before - I created this card from different challenges!  Here they are:
Do You Stack Up - Red Hot
Eat, Sleep, Stamp - sketch
Moving Along with the Times - red
Outlawz - use Flourishes
Sassy Studios - Heart

Not as many as some of you use out there, but that is a lot for me!  I cut my heart out with the sheet of adhesive and tried to cover it in glitter -- that didn't work as well as I thought it would, so I added red glitter glue over the top.  I wanted a really sparkly heart.  My flourished background is the crayon resist technique.. My Love sentiment is a sneak peek of MFP's new set Spring has Sprung (released 2/8).  DH kind of hesitated when I asked him if he liked it -- hmmm... oh well I am happy with it :).

Please join us over at Speedy the Cat's Blog Challenge and use self made flowers on your card.
Thanks for stopping by~
