Felt Flowers (& Mint Motif)

Good Morning!  Happy Thursday - almost St. Patrick's Day!  I have a nephew and a good friend of the boys born on St. Patrick's Day so it is always a great excuse for a celebration!!  I just had to come back and share another Mint Motif project I made with the latest sets!  I have had fun creating with these sets and even have another card to share next week!!  I also wanted to draw your attention to the fabulous felt that Kate has started carrying at i {heart} papers!  I purchased a few colors with my last order and I absolutely LOVE it, especially the color (heliotrope pink) on this card!  It is soft and tightly woven and cuts great - at least it did with the Spellbinders dies I used for this card. 

For the card, I started by stamping the background panel with two different shades of green, overlapping the border from Beyond Borders, Too as I moved across the card.  I like the two tone effect it gives the over all card.  I then die cut a piece of green cardstock with a Spellbinders die from one of the banner sets, stamped the sentiment from Simply Sentiments and added it to the card.  Lastly, I die cut those flowers with the Spellbinders Peony dies, added white buttons with green embroidery floss and adhered them to the card. 

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting today!!
