A Challenge That's Right Up My Street

This week I discovered the Cardalicious challenge blog and as fate would have it their latest challenge was right up my street:

this weeks challenge--make a thank you card using something felt, some sort of stitching and use the color pink.
Could this be more perfect for me? I think not! So here is what I came up with:
Ingredients:
Felt birdie cut using a Boss Cut die
Oval and scalloped oval cut from fabric and felt using Nestabilities
Stitched using embroidery thread from a pound shop
Flowers cut using a Cuttlebug die with added Primas and mini buttons from Crafts By Carolyn
Felt ric-rac from Paper and String
Basic Grey Phoebe paper
Bazzill Basics Card
Hand written greeting
Inking and pen-stitching to finish

Also, as I have a day off work I can join in with the prompts over on HerSpace:MySpace:HisSpace. (It's usually too dark when I get home). Today's prompt is 'Herb' and here's my not very original take on it:


Cheers,
