2012 Calendar Challenge - Felt

This week's challenge over at The Craft Barn is "Felt".  I didn't have any pieces of felt material so I decided to make my own felt.  I used wool roving to needle felt in the center of some flower petals to attach them to a small piece of cream silk material.  I used several other colours of wool roving and tiny shreds of the silk material to make the background.  The colours of this are much richer than I can get in my photograph.

The top sheet of the notepad is decorated with a stamped flower and the word "notes" I formed from pink wire and attached with tiny brads.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments last week and for visiting my blog.  I look forward to seeing everyone's work.
