Sparkly felt and a strip of ribbon

Today's card is based on a card I saw in a recent issue of Paper Craft magazine. The focus of the article was on using felt for projects - this is something I haven't done before but I did have a bunch of felt available (in the kids' doodle drawers).
I chose a sparkly white felt and free hand-cut a dress shape. I wanted to keep it very simple so just added a thin strip of ribbon around the waist. The dress really sparkles but unfortunately that doesn't come through in the photo. The sentiment is computer-generated then cut out and layered.

I've decided to donate this card to Cards for Kids since I don't have many opportunities to give cards to young ladies. My kids are still quite young (and boys) so all the cards I make for them & their friends are of the goofy/childish variety. I'm thoroughly enjoying making cards for Cards for Kids though since I can use it as an excuse to make cards for all ages and types of kids. If you love to make cards, then check out the site and think about donating a few!
