Jellypark Friends Felt Challenge 11 - 2nd December 2011

This is the hardest post I've ever done as I have to be so careful that the OH doesn't see what I'm doing. The card I am about to show is not only my challenge dt card for the latest Jellypark Friends Challenge but my dear husbands Christmas card. The challenge this time round is to use felt in your project, which is right up my street, I adore felt and I use it a lot at this time of year in my handmade christmas decorations. The image is called "couple kissing under mistletoe and it's a new release over at the Jellypark Store and what a wonderful one it is too.

The papers are from a fabulous digikit called Oh Joy from Cosmo Cricket. I printed them out and then layered them up and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz inks. The sentiment is also from that range and I added the wording to it. I embroidered the felt snowflake and added a co-ordinating sequin to the centre.
The image has been coloured with my promarkers and I've tried to make them look like the OH and I. I hope he likes it.
Pop on over to the Challenge blog to see the delights on offer from the Design Team and Happy Crafting.
