A handmade flower...

Hi!

**Woohoo This card was selected as The Shabby Tea Room's Honorable Mention Cup of Tea! Yay! Thank you so much**

I have been working on some other projects that I am not able to post yet, but decided to take a break and create a handmade flower from felt. The Shabby Tea Room has a challenge to make handmade flowers this week, so I thought I would take this opportunity to try my hand at one I have been wanting to do for awhile. I didn't have a lot of extra time today, so I basically put this card together with things leftover from other makes.  The card came together very quickly. Making the flower took the longest and that didn't take long at all. Even the sentiment panel was already stamped and leftover from another make. Easy peasy!

I know I usually am better about being descriptive, but I am running short on time as I have to take the little one to his swimming lesson! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions! I will be happy to answer.
A close up of the flower.
As mentioned, I was inspired by The Shabby Tea Room: Homegrown Flower Inspiration this week. 
Also swinging in Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge: All snippets on this make!
Moxie Fab: Handmade Embellishments - Felt Flower was all cut and made by hand.
Thanks for dropping in! I've got some things I am catching up on, and I will be swinging around real soon I promise!
