Navy flower card

Good afternoon friends/bloggers, I hope all is well today 
for you all. Here is a second card for this week's 
'Less is More' challenge, where the theme is.......

Felt or Fabric
I went for a shabby chic look this time, in shades of
purple and navy.Quite liking this colour combo! Details
 below card....and my ramblings lol. Come and
 have a closer look...........
close- up
I have lots of chiffon I bought in different shades to make
flowers with. I went with the navy colour. After cutting and
 singeing the ends I sewed some tiny beads in the middle.
The leaves and 'buds' I pinched from some pot pourri, well
the leaves were like paper mache so........fabric? I didn't
 have any purple bakers twine so made my own.
 Not brilliant I know but at least it matches. TH distress
 inking and a bit of  distressing to the edge of the card. I
 made a banner & added a Woodware stamped sentiment.
 Job done !
ps. More changes afoot ( excuse pun....see below ), after
 getting to used my new smart phone, then my new tablet,then
 new glasses (varifocals for the 1st time).
It seems I have another new thing to get used to now.
I have been having foot problems for several years now
and my reflexologist has been nagging me to get a referral to
see a Podiatrist.My arches have dropped & my leg is
 changing shape accordingly............ oh my !
Well today I saw him ( very nice young man) and he
 is getting me  fitted with custom orthotics. It involved
 lots of warm water and  plaster....very nice experience! 
He did say my feet were very flexible, which is a good thing
 apparantly lol. I hope this will help me be able  to walk
 better and  with much less pain. I will report back soon :)

A superb card, so love the parchment effect of the top layer and that flower is outstanding.
Do hope that your feet improve soon, it's awful when you can't walk without pain.
