Check out me felt flowers!!!!

I'm full of the joys of spring today!! It's a beautiful day again and the sun's shining, which somehow always make me feel brighter and I'm all excited about seeing my friend's new baby (from the pics - oh my gawd, he is a little gorgeous cutie!!!!!) And it's the start of a new week! With the new week, brings a new challenge over at Paper Cupcakes and this week, Chelsea has challenged us to use not only stitching but also fabric on our cards!! Here's mine:
The image is from Paper Cupcakes and is coloured with promarkers with the background done in chalks (which is something I'm growing rather fond of lately!), I've used some of my new Ally Pally purchases - the shaped card blank from Craftwork Cards and my GoKreate die to cut the image panel (see how I got them to match!!??), the paper is Papermania Hanoverian and I've added some flowers that I made myself (feeling rather proud of myself about these cos I was pleased with how they turned out!) using some felt and my MFT dies, then lastly, I've popped on a few pearls from my stash.
I'm also going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Righty ho, I think that's about it. I'll be back later with another card but I'm off round me dad's to get him to wash my car! TTFN xx
