More felt and thanks

First of all, I want to say thanks to those of you who quickly offered to help me with my Bella dilemma! It's so nice to have friends! I really appreciate all of you guys!

I played around with some more felt. This is one of those 'it looks great in my head' cards that doesn't turn out quite like I wanted. I think it might be that the felt is too bright. I can't decide. I picked up this Rhonna Farrer Swirls set at Wal-Mart for less than $9. I'm really really liking have more 'swirly' options. I have the Flourishes set but it's a nice compliment to this one.

  • Swirls (Rhonna Rarrer)
  • Hello (JoAnn's $1 set)
  • Cuttlebug Asterics die
  • Certainly Celery, white CS
  • Marvy Giga scallop circle
  • Versamagic Aloe Vera chalk ink
  • felt, rhinestone, ribbon, pop dots, push pin

With this one I wanted to imitate the look of the American Crafts rub ons. I'm kind of on the fence about this card too. I should have stamped the images higher on the card. Oh well, can't make everything perfect can we?

  • Happy Harmony, Small Script stamp sets (SU)
  • Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise dye ink
  • aqua painter
  • ribbon
I wanted to mention that if you have made any cards for the troops from Dawn's site you need to get them sent out so they get to her in time!

I love both of your cards today! I don't think the felt flower is to bright at all...and it looks great with the ribbon & brads. Your Happy Harmony looks so pretty as the CC & TT together!
