Soft and Fluffy Little Extra

Time for another Tuesday challenge from the Daring Cardmakers
As always it's been great to see people having fun with Lythan's challenge for this week's "main" dare - we love to see all the cards you show and there's always room for more players.
The Little Extra this week is :
"You Big Softie"
We want you to use something
soft on your card
feathers, velvet paper, fluffy fibres
all that soft, strokable stuff counts for this one
and that's it,
easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

I had the idea that feathers could be used as "petals" for a multi layered flower and I'm not sure it's worked tbh - still, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Paper is from the July (I think) SA Kit
Flower is made from feathers, a big blue "fat" daisy, a felt flower and a turquoise "splat" flower.
Metallic turquoise eyelets are from Impress in the US

That's the card that was put on the DCM blog when the LE was launched - but then Nice Postie came bringing a box of new goodies, so I sat down and made another card and have changed the blog to show this next one instead!

So - my new stash is a pile of Daisy Bucket papers, and some velvet paper too - perfect for a Softy challenge.
Papers are from the Garden Gate and Wrapped Wishes ranges. The red circles and flower are velvet paper. I cut all the bits with the Robo and added some ric-rac for the stems.
I think I might add some sort of greeting eventually.

Please check out the DCM blog for nore fantastic cards, and do join in with a bit of soft stuff of your own - it's fun - honestly!
