PTI Blog Hop Felt

 
 
Welcome everyone!!!  I know it is a late post.  Again I forgot about the PTI blog hop.  Thankfully my sister mentioned she was working on her project this morning so I had some time to get something together.
I decided to do a technique I used on a styrofoam wreath I worked on during Valentine's.
Without further ado, here is my card
I used some colors that Dawn McVey put together for PTI's color couture.  I started with a vintage cream base and them topped it with some berry sorbet cardstock that I embossed using my scor-pal.  I free-handed the spring moss "grass" and then sponged it with ripe avocado ink.
The stems were made with a stamp I found in the Paper Tray stamp set and the leaves were cut by hand and I used my copic marker (YG63 Pea Green) to make the veins.
The flowers are the felt that I cut into circles and folded in fours.  I then attached it to the card using some ripe avocado DMC floss.
The sentiment is from Floral Frenzy.  I cut out the sentiment using my nestability die and vintage cream cardstock.  The ribbon was on my desk and the brads were also in my stash.
I hope you like it and have fun during the hop.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
