Floral Frenzy Challenge......PTI BLOG HOP


I got the chance to make a card for Papertrey's Blog Hop this month. I read the challenge just yesterday and loved the idea of using felt. I love how the flowers turned out....I just free handed them on the felt and cut them out. Not too bad for my first attempt. The buttons just made the card I think. I seem to be using this color combination a lot lately, pure poppy and dark chocolate.

For those of you that follow my blog, you'll notice that my daughter, Ava, helped out with picture taking again! She is too funny, she runs to the steps where I take all of my pictures and can't run there fast enough. I have to literally move her to take a picture of the card and then I hand it off to her to model, just like Vanna White!


Most of you that follow my blog know that my son has cancer, so you can imagine the times that my kids have seen shots (pokes to them). I was sewing the buttons on with a needle and Ava was almost in tears because she was afraid I was going to hurt myself. It was too funny. She didn't understand why I needed a poke to make a card.


Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

Your card & flower are fabulous - I can't believe it's free-handed either! I had to use a purchase felt flower (don't really have any felt on hand anyway) & "make it my own"!!! Gorgeous card!!!
