Creative Belli 111 - Fabric or Felt

Hi there! Today we have a new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. This week we want to challenge you to use fabric or felt on your project. Now, don't go out and buy some...use something you have in your stash already. The Belli DT has some wonderful inspiration for you to help get your mind going on this one. Here is what I came up with... As you can see, I made some fabric flowers for this challenge. My dad got me some Yo-Yo makers for Christmas, and I thought they would be perfect for this challenge. I grabbed some fabric that was left over pieces from the turkey banners I made with my DD's 3 grade class in November...and those were left over scraps from a friend of my mom who quilts. I then used my Cricut to cut a little "planter". The PP is a Tim Holtz stack I won at the Superbowl party at my LSS. I also used my Cricut to cut the leaves for the flowers. Then I added buttons to the center of my flowers. Last, I wanted the planter to look like a tiled mosaic pot...so I pulled out my crystal effects and added it only to the squares. I thought it turned out exactly how I wanted! It feels pretty cool to touch too...lol. Last I added a sticker to the top...the sticker is from SRM.
Well that is all for my card. Now we want to see your fabric or felt creation. Head on over to the Creative Belli Blog, and link up your project for us to oogle over. We love seeing all the projects that you all make.

This card is also for the Simon Says Challenge: Make your own Embellishment...my yo yos are homemade.
