Felt {flowers!}

Hi blog peeps!!!  Happy Friday to you!  Wow, did this week fly by again for me! How about you?  Well, thankfully, I got to catch my breath a little this morning and channeled some creativity with my early morning cup of coffee.  I am still on my flower kick, and I really do love the Island Floral and Blossom Party dies!  So, this time, I thought I'd create some felt flowers.  Here's a look at my full card:
I think it's got such a summery feel to it!  I love that Dahlia like flower - it's fun and it really makes me smile! :)  The leaves and smaller flowers in the middle are from the Island Floral Bigz die and the bigger outer flowers are from the Blossom Party Originals die.  The DSP I used is the Island Party DSP from the SU! Summer Mini catalog.  Not only did I create a scallop square card as you see above, but it's also one of those that you can prop up.  I think they're called Easel cards.  Here's another look:
The inside of the card has a border that makes the card "prop up."  Here's a look from the side:
So, what do you think?  Hope you like it.  Here's the recipe:

P.S. What do you use to prop your cards on when you photograph them?
