Scrap-a-licious !

Hello I have another card to show you tonight.

This time I have been inspired by the sketch over at Unscripted
I just knew I had to play along with the amazing DT at unscripted this week as this sketch looked perfect for me to use some of my bits and peices from my scrap drawer which is my new years resolution - yes I have promised myself that I will use up a good amount of the scraps in my drawer before I buy any more papers :/

The sketch is also perfect for a CAS design so that's just what I went with !

I used some felt from sew sweet to make a flower. I have been wanting to try and make one of these since I saw the new(ish) dies on the market and thought to myself I can do that without a die !
It's my 1st attempt and not perfect but I think it's ok - I'll have another go and maybe cut my felt wider so the loops are loopier !


I embossed my kraft cardstock using my MS embossing board and layered it up with some co-ordinating bazzill card. My DP and matching elements are old freebies from a magazine giveaway. I added some doodling with my gel pen to make the papers and elements "pop" a bit more.

From the angle that I took the photo it looks like my sentiment says "irthday wishes" but believe me there is a "B" behind that flower !

I done lots of experimenting with this card and had loads of fun playing with it - hey isn't that what it's all about ?!
