G'day everyone Gillian here, it's my turn to dare you this week, as you may have noticed felt is really hot in the crafting world at the moment, and it's available in so many ways now, in sheet form in a rainbow of colours, precut shapes, beautiful felt borders, even lovely patterned felt and felt with glitter...So I reckon it's a great medium to dare you with.
So here's the dare, Make a card and include some felt,the theme & style are entirely up to you,Can't wait to see what you come up with

How fun is felt?!
So fun that it's our new challenge!
Make a card using felt somehow, some way on your cardfront!

========================
Here's my card using felt. I took a small piece of felt and cut a scalloped edge, distressed by inking the red felt and then tucked it behind the pp and sewed it down and also I used felt rick rack from Offray as a border down the edge of the pp and adhesived it down with brads. Used: Paperbilities CS, K&Co pp's, Paper Studio Round Brads and Marquee Letters, Chocolate Ink, black thread. Thanks so much for looking! ~Dawn
