DCM weekly dare - Fun, Funky, Fabulous FELT...

This week at Daring Cardmakers,
it was my turn to set the dare,
as you may have noticed felt is really hot in the crafting world at the moment, and it's available in so many ways now, in sheet form in a rainbow of colours, precut shapes, beautiful felt borders, even lovely patterned felt and felt with glitter...
So I reckon it's a great medium to dare you with.
So here's the dare, Make a card and include some felt,
the theme & style are entirely up to you,
Isn't she cute!!!!...
she just makes me smile each time I look at this lovely little monster card..
My Card was inspired by the work of Elsie Flannigan and Mel Goodsell both of these ladies not only make the most delightful scrapbook LO's but they make the cutiest little 'softies',
a wonderful craze at the mo go check there blogs out they'll make you smile :o)
And if you need any other inspiration for using FELT
take a look at the very clever
Keryn Quall's blog..oh what this girl can do with felt Wow......
Fabulously Felty bits I used are - Bazzill Cardstock, Felt - Pink, orange, white, Embroildery floss - yellow & pink, Urban Lily Number sticker, paper flower, Sei button and another from my stash, white paper to back my little monster girl, the words are computer generated, And where would I be without my sewing machine now!
