MIM #285 - Felt flowers

I had lots of fun with this weeks Make it Monday at Papertrey ink. Lizzie showed us a variety of ways to make felt flowers. I tried to make the carnation style and didn't have much success, but I'm very taken with the flowers made around a wrapped centre. So much so that I made 2 versions.

The first one is made with Tim Holtz's tattered florals dies with a simple centre made from Smoky shadow felt.
It looks a bit like an anemone to me.

The second (slightly smaller) is made with PTI Lovely layers die and uses the folded wrapped centre that Lizzie demonstrated. This time I used Spring moss felt.
Now I just need to work out what to do with them!

MIM #283

I've been getting better at using watercolours - buying the proper paper rather than just trying to use cardstock makes all the difference! So I enjoyed this challenge at Papertrey Ink.
I was tidying up my desk drawers this weekend and found "Wishes come true", which I hadn't used for ages so I thought I'd use it for this card.
