Handmade patterned paper and felt flower

Happy Monday Everyone! 

I got the inspiration to make this card from some patterned paper I saw online and a great flower tutorial.

I created this background on lemon tart cardstock using the medium flower stamp from Beautiful Blooms II where I stamped the image using the back of the stamp to give me this scalloped circle.  I then pulled out the Guideline Two set and stamped various images in the middle of the circle and  filled the empty spaces with a small flower stamp for Beautiul Blloms II.   The color inks I used were aqua mist, spring moss, orange zest, hibiscus burst, ripe avocado, hawaiian shores, shappy pink from Color Box and a purple ink that has no name.

I wanted to give this card a bit of a vintage feel so I distressed the edges with chai ink, embossed it with the linen/canvas impression plate and added some lace and berry sorbet twill ribbon before I attached it to my berry sorbet card base.

Now for this delicious felt flower,  I have a shout out to Eva for the great tutorial she posted for the blog hop found here .  I couldn't believe how fast it all came together.  I added a  button from my stash to add to the vintagie feel I was going for.  I attached the flower to a piece of spring moss cardstock using the Mat Stack I die then added some foam pop dots to the top and bottom of the cardstock before adding this final touch to the card.  You probably noticed that I did not use a sentiment, I figured I would add this later for the proper occasion.

Thanks again Eva for the great tut, now I'm off to make more flowers but this time I'm going to try this with some fabric.  I'll let you know how they turn out.  Until then, thanks for stopping by.
