May Waltzingmouse Blog Party

Today I am participating in the May Waltzingmouse Blog Party -  and the theme is to use comfy felt or fabric!  You will find all the details about the party here.

I used felt on my card today - making this pretty rose with the Spiral Blossom One die by Spellbinders. I dotted a little glue over the rose and sprinkled Coarse Glitter from Martha Stewart on it.  I added a single dew drop to the center.
I stamped a panel of stone card stock with the dashes and lines back ground stamp from Heirloom Patterns and layered it to a panel of Scarlet Jewel.  I adhered the panel to the card with foam tape. 

You can see how lush the felt flower is from the side view. This card will definitely have to be hand delivered and would have to be put in a large envelope or clear box!!
The leaves are from Big Blooms Chrysanthemums that I inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves and cut out.  I rolled each leaf on my finger to curl them a bit and layered them on the panel with foam tape.  I adhered the rose over the leaves with a thick glue dot.
The wedding sentiment is from Compact Sentiments.
