CFC 95 challenge

Another challenge for CAS-ual Fridays click ... this week we are not allowed to use ANY stamps.
First I thought ... oh wow. None of my beloved stamps, that`s not good.
But THEN I thought: maybe there IS something good about it as I have tons of other things in my crafting room, that I NEVER use because I do so much stamping.
Now was their time to come out and play! :-)
This is the card I created:

The background is some patterned paper, I only distressed the edges with some vintage photo distress ink.
Then I used this (istn`t it just lovely?) felt stem that I had bought months ago (at least). It is already sticky on the back so I didn`t need any more glue to adhere it :-)
The next thing that I adhered over the bottom portion of the felt stem is a fabric ribbon from webster`s pages. It has a lovely color with super cute butterflies in white (you cannot see it that well on the picture) - really nice. I went over the edges with my sponge and some more vintage photo distress ink.
The tiny wood tag is from littly yellow bicycle and has a foam dots on the back side, and as a finishing touch I used some teensy type carstock letter stickers from doodlebug designs to form the word `life´.
Hope you like my card :-)
I have to say ... I am proud of myself that I`m able to create something nice without using a stamp *lol*
