This cute mobile is the inspiration piece for Beate’s Inspiration Challenge #31 this week.


Here is the card that I made for it.


As soon as I saw those darling felt birds, I knew I would be using my felt flowers from SU!’s Flower Fusion.  The leaves were created by cutting off some of the petals on one of the green flowers.  The sweet little bird in the Fun and Fast Notes set seemed like the perfect place to start, too.  And I tried to stay close to the colors in the inspiration piece.

Hope you can play along.  This was a FUN one!  Check out the other Inspiration Team’s creations:
