Feeling Retro

Well here's a shock, two posts in a day. It is nothing to do with the fact that it's a bank holiday and the weather is rubbish ;) I've even made a card and therefore I can now confirm that my Cuttlebug survived having rubber stamps shoved in it (see last post).

I got some Hobbycraft vouchers for my birthday (from my Sis) and this is the stash I got with them yesterday. I'm feeling kind of retro at the moment and for me that means felt as it reminds me of art lessons at primary school. So in amongst the Hobbycraft haul were quite a few sheets of felt to co-ordinate with the fab retroish K and Co papers.
I decided to get stuck into my stash today and make a thank you card for my Sis, so she can see I actually use stuff she pays for :). For inspiration I popped over to Daring Card Makers and picked up this week's dare set by Tanya:

OK, this week it's Tanya's turn to set the dare and this time it's a dare with a POINT! A nice sharp point, at that!This Way!I want to see arrows on your cards - whether big, small, staright, curly, lots or just one arrow

This is the finished card with just the one arrow;

K&CO Papers, Felt and Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder (from Hobbycraft purchases)
Flowers cut using Sizzix and Cuttlebug dies
Faux stitching
Hand cut arrow
Dymo tape for greeting
