Eeek!! It's the first Monday of work AND a staff meeting, ugh!!! I have been informed by a member of my new staff that the staff meetings are great and don't go too long...here's hoping!! LOL If it does, I will just go to my "happy place" and design cards for upcoming challenges...hehehe. My card today is for Stacy's Curtain Call Colour Challenge. I was once again intrigued by the neutral palette, although it looks a lot easier than it was. My original card did not have the ledger paper behind the flower, but that sweet felt flower just needed something to anchor it...hence the ledger paper. The artichoke cardstock has been embossed with the SU square lattice embossing folder and has been stitched down each side. (You can click on the picture for a closer view). I've made a few of these fun felt flowers before, compliments of the Betsy Veldman tutorial. They are so fun and if you don't have any PTI felt yet, get some!! It cuts like butt-ah...it's also thin so it's not as bulky as the cheap Dollar Store stuff (of which I have tons!!). I was rooting around in my green button jar and found this sweet button with a rose on it. The leaves are handmade, stamped, distressed and crumpled. Okay, wish me luck on the first Monday!! LOL I hope you're having a lovely start to your week :)
