Just Us Girls Challenge - Wildcard Using Felt

Hello~

I know it's Tuesday, but it sure feels like Monday since everyone is getting back into their daily routines.

The new challenge at Just Us Girls is a wildcard. The challenge: To use felt on your creation.
Here is my creation.
For my creation I started with a Basic Black card base, and used a variety of papers from DCWV and Stampin' UP! to adhere to the card base.  I added some crochet trim from my stash.  I used some PTI dies to arrange a focal area to display my felt butterfly.  I die cut the butterfly from PTI twice adding a button and some black May Arts twine and a Tim Holtz memory pin.

*Sorry my flash got a little happy! :-)*
I completed the card with a DeNami Designs sentiment from the Assorted Greetings Stamp set and some Ziva Creative rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope your Tuesday was Terrific!
~Tammy~

Tammy the felt butterfly flutters with cozy warmth. I like how you also added in other textures (lace and buttons) to compliment the felt. Fabulous design!
