Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #20

Hi Everyone!!
It's Monday, so it's Heart Song Inspiration Challenge time!!

This weeks challenge theme is... "Use Flowers and/or Felt"!

We'd love you to play along with us! You don't have to use a Heart Song image - but of course we would love you to! You could win two images of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

Now I was SURE I had some felt... but do you think I could find it? I'm one of those annoying people who like to know where everything is in my craft room - and I know I had one little piece of felt... but it wasn't "in it's place"!! (I know!!! I was as horrified as you!) So... this weeks card will have to be all about the flowers! I regularly add flowers as embellishments to my cards, so I figured that was too easy. I set myself the goal of doing the "Flowers Challenge" - without adding any actual flowers.

So I used one of Leah's sweet  Heart Song Designs images, "Vase of Flowers", and some floral paper from My Minds Eye "Stella and Rose - Mabel". I still needed some pretties, so I added some lace and pearls...

And here's a close-up of Leah's sweet image...

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!
