Felt A Flower Was Needed

I did it, I left everyone watching TV downstairs & snuck into my craft room to play. And I managed to knock out a card for entering into this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. A Split Complimentary scheme (which on a colour wheel is taking the red, seeing it's opposite, green & choosing the colours either side of it, blue & yellow-green). It's a favourite scheme amongst a lot of designers.

Anyhoo, I looked through my stash to find the right colours and happened upon some felt which was crying out to be used. And who am I to ignore material which is calling to me. So out came my Spellbinders flower die, and one brad later, I had my focal piece.

Plus I said, I would use my winnings and I have. The stamped vertical lines on the left hand side.

All the card is from DCWV. I'm determined to go through the mini packs of papers I have lying around here.
