LIM week 138 - felt

 When I saw the challenge on Less is More this week is felt or fabric, I knew this was the opportunity I had been looking for to use some felt flowers I have. I never seem to think of them when I make a card - so for the first card I used an embossing folder and stamped a verse with an olive archival inkpad. I used a versamark embossing pen to then coat the image with perfect pearls. Adding a felt flower and another thing I am trying to use - these pearlised gems.
I have to admit the second card was born out of the need to use more of these flowers! As the first card only got rid of one LOL!
I used the embossing folder tied together, and successfully married up the pattern, so a first there. The used some more of the felt flowers and mounted them onto a spellbinder blossom die cut. I then used part of a freebie stamp for the sentiment.
