Here's a pretty quick and easy card for a little card club I go to once a month on Tuesday evenings. It makes use of Prima-style handmade paper flowers which you can find a tutorial for here
STAMPS: label and quote - Stampin' Up!, wildflowers - See-D's, distressed shadow and faux stitch - Hero Arts
INKS: Stampin' Up! Mellow Moss and Pale Plum, Staz-On Jet Black
SUPPLIES: white gel pen, Liquid Pearls, mini Glue Dots, ribbons - dotted grosgrain and black/white gingham, dry embossing tool, flower punches

Technique Junkie Faux Felt technique!
