Indian summer with felt flowers

I haven't blogged and shown any crafting since Saturday, but I have made some cards, it's just that I can't share them yet. From Thursday I'll be in Eastbourne for a week so I've been preparing my cards for CHNC challenges for the next three Saturdays - because when we come back I need to promptly get sorted for my Tearfund sale on Saturday 8 October.

I've also been working on the draft for a Christmas card order (to make 300 - isn't as bad as it seems because it's a matter of preparing on computer and then printing - but I'm at the stage of trying out all different drafts till I'm happy with it).

So I thought I'd have a bit of a break and make a quick card. This BG Indian summer paper does most of the work of the card - it would be a shame to cover too much of it - so all I've done is add a sentiment and three layered felt flowers from Poundland.

The colours are for Cards and things 87:

The colours are also for Basic Grey 53: pink and brown.

This is also for:

Top tip Tuesday 51: birthday time
My mum's craft shop 23: happy birthday
CropStop 37: button up ladies
