Here is the first card I am sharing that I made at the July craft retreat I attended.   The colors are cheerful and the textures are nice.  The cream is a water color paper with a great textured tooth. I like how the harlequin stamp looks distressed stamped on it.  I like the torn edges in contrast to the crisp, straight lines of the cream and aqua. I just like torn edges in general.
In hindsight I wish I would have made the flower removable so it could be a magnet or a pin.  It is a little embarrassing how long it took me to sew together those four felt flowers folded into quarters.  I tell you this because I was working on my first cup of coffee while I was sewing it and by the time I got my second cup of coffee I was a crafting bee zipping through the rest of this flower, finishing the card, and moving on to several others.  It took me forever to sew 2.5 petals together!  Lesson learned: I should finish drinking my coffee before crafting. ;)
Thanks for stopping in! Have a fab weekend!
