Make It Monday #66: Felt Flowers From Border Dies

The latest MIM from Papertrey Ink (go HERE to check out the video) shows how to use a border die to make a felt flower...Ashley used a scallop border die and a heart border die and one other one.  Then she rolled them to make a little bud embellishment.  I used the small scallop border die with raspberry fizz felt to make some small little buds.  For my card, I first stamped with versamark ink the flowers from Pretty Peonies, then I heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then used some Distress Inks and a foam sponge to ink in the areas of the flower and the leaves.  My original thought was to have these felt buds nestled in among the full blown flowers, but it didn't look quite right to me, so I just put them down at the bottom of the card.  I stamped the frame image off the card and added my sentiment.
