Lets start from the start .Here is how I made the background.
I started with a textured paper.Its result of my failed attempt to make fiber texture paste (tutorial). The paste did not turn out smooth n creamy, rather than throwing it away I spread the paste on paper and kept it for future use.Then I misted diluted acrylic colors (blue ,pink n purple) through hand cut stencil. Then splashed some color,made some circle using empty thread spool.The bg looked quite dark so gave a coat of gesso(white glue + acrylic paint) to tone it down and painted small hearts on it .Then sanded its edges and tore it at few places.
When I searched for felt fabric in our local market what I got was close resembling fabric "Flannel". Both are wool fabric, felt is non-woven and flannel woven.I thought of giving it a try and used the fabric to make embellishments.

For decorating inner side of card I used the paper on which I tried the bg first ,I have layered packing tissue over it to make it dull .
All the paper used except the card base are from old invites. Plain sides can be used for making bg,layering and cutting base of embellishments.Do tell me what you think of the card :).
Special Thanks to Yvonne for the wonderful goodies ! I have tied the heart with bird's beak using twine she sent me .
