A card inspired by Marlou!

I go on Marlou's blog all the time and love how she incorporates felt into her cards. So I guess you can say, she inspired me!
I love the look of the felt because it looks so cozy and homemade. I cut the brown felt and did a blanket stitch around it! (Yes, I actually know a couple of different stitches....shocking!) The flower was cut embossed with my Cuttlebug. I added blue felt to the center of the flower and sequins. I used my Copics to give them brown centers. I added a jewelry tag for the sentiment, which was stamped with my snap stamps.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
