Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Felt

Leafy Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

Leafy Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite ThingsI took my inspiration from the leaves and colors in the inspiration photo as well as the current sketch at Sunday Stamps.  My card features a more muted take on the color scheme, with its pale aqua felt leaves and a lighter orange patterned paper.  I haven't used much felt lately, so it was fun to dig it out and make it the focal point here with my pair of die cut leaves!  

I used kraft paper behind the leaves to bring in the look of the burlap background and some looped twine in a nod to the embroidery hoop.  A little strategically placed adhesive keeps it all in place.  The trio of orange enamel dots brought in the polka dot element in the photo.  After stamping the "thank you" sentiment from the My Favorite Things Big Greetings stamp set above the leafy arrangement in brown ink, I adhered the kraft panel to a card base edged with an orange plaid patterned paper strip.
