For today's creation I couldn't help but think of the song "Wildfire" when I saw this new Bronco Stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. It took me in a whole other direction then I am used to going in and it was such fun. I was even able to figure out how to make plain ole brown cardstock look like leather!!!
I created the leather look by embossing brown cardstock and apply glossy accents over it. The flowers were cut on felt with the posy die cut and assemble on a brad.

Wow - you were right - I totally love this card. That brown "leather" is so awesome - I am going to try it this weekend. I also adore those felt flowers - I am going to get some felt too because I love to pretend I can copy you (that was a rhyme I made up - it is early and I had a little too much coffee already). Wonderful card Carol - you are always full of so many wonderful details and tips!! Love it!!!
