Felt & paper flower for a special birthday

It was my lovely Mum's 65th birthday two weeks ago
and this is the card I made for her.
I was making a Christmas table runner from felt and because I had the felt already out on the table I thought I'd try it out on the card.
I loved the effect and I'm pleased to say, Mum loved her card too :)

 Sizzix, Nestablilities, and Cuttlebug dies cut through felt very well and I used Sizzix dies for the flower and the flourish.
The hexagons are from a sheet of Echo Park paper (Sweet Day) and I cut them out individually and arranged them on the card blank.

I cut a rough spiral from a circle of patterned paper and rolled it into a flower and layered it on top of the yellow felt flower.
The sentiment is printed on the computer using 'Delius' font.

That's it for today,
I'd better go now and rustle up something for tea!

I'd love you to join me tomorrow for my project in Creative Craft World's rainbow blog hop!
I'm also having a prize draw.
Check out all the details here tomorrow (from 7am).

Thanks for visiting today :)
Take care
Sarah xx
