Paper Sundaes is using felt!

Sunday morning and time for a new challenge at Paper Sundaes. We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and the challenge this week is to use felt on our card. I have used a Greeting Farm stamp which Simon Says Stamp sells and some bright pink felt to make a "honkin huge" felt flower for on top of my bow.

A couple of the girls have asked me how I did it and I will tell you briefly and perhaps someday I will get ambitious and do a tutorial. I used a MFT flower die and cut out 4 flower shapes, doesn't matter which one you use, just personal preference. Then I folded each shape in half then in half again so it is quartered, put a stitch thru the bottom where all the folds meet and then stitch them all together at the bottom. Fluff it up and tada! honkin huge felt flower! Of course I could have gone with the smaller flower but honestly, this is for my friend Grace and she deserves a big flower! Hey Grace, Happy Birthdday!  Alright, hop on over to Paper Sundaes so you can see what the other girls have done, such an amazing variety of ways to use felt I tell ya!  I am entering my card into the following challenges:
