Anyway, the unique thing about this card is the wool felt brooch attached to the ribbon in the upper right corner. Instead of leaving it as an embellishment permanently attached to the card, I thought maybe a removable pin might be a better idea! I dyed a bunch of wool felt last year, with cake icing colors if you can believe it, and one of the blues came out perfect. It was variegated from a pale baby blue to the lightest of lavenders, really beautiful! It reminded me of Hydrangeas. SO that's what I decided to make with it. Now get this: I punched one of the Hydrangea flowers with my Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch! Dont' get all excited yet, it wasn't easy--and far from perfect! I probably won't do it again. Too rough of a cut, I had to trim all the edges, they were fuzzy and uneven. I ended up cutting the two smaller flowers by hand.
After some decorative stitching around the edges, I attached it to a self stick pin backing, with a bit of extra red liner tape to make sure it doesn't fall off.
