Felt Flower!

Went to my local papercraft shop the other day and saw a flower embellishment that I really liked -but unfortunately it was  terribly expensive )-: so I decided to try and make my own version of it. This was my first try so I didn't take any pictures as I made it, but I'll post a tutorial for it as soon as I have the time. If I'm lucky I'll have a student at school who wants to make one so I can write it there (-;
Anyway, here is the result:







I used the colors from the Playdate Cafe and will enter it for the Felt challenge at Moxie Fab World and for the Fabric/Felt challenge at Lily Pad cards.
The stamps I've used are from Waltzing Mouse and Skipping stones.

Have a great Thursday. I'm back on Saturday with some very exciting news I've been wanting to tell you for a long time (a month (-:) and since it is my 1 year blogaversary, that's also when I'll draw the winner of my little giveaway.
Hugs Karin

Wow! Your flower is beautiful! I bet it looks much nicer and gives you a greater sense of satisfaction than any shop bought flower too :)

I am also looking forward to the tutorial! I'm not often inspired to use felt, it has to be pretty good to move me, but this is definitely inspiration enough :)
