Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

I needed to make a card for a swap that involved the use of felt. I found myself sitting around thinking, "Now who the heck came up with that idea?" which is kind of ridiculous because it was my idea.  I've seen some really nice cards that have felt pieces on them which is what inspired me to come up with the idea.  However, beyond thinking it was a cool theme I was stumped for what to do with it.
Then while I was puttering around I came up with this ide and I have to say I impressed myself.  This card does double duty because not only will it work for my felt swap but I can do it for an A Muse card make and take too so I made a second one.  Did I say double duty?  Well, triple duty really because I made a third one that is birthday themed (Squeeze the Day).
Here's the inside of the card.  I used the lemon slice to help anchor down the ribbon that is wrapped around the card.  Plus you can add some drips and really enhance the greeting.  I was quite tickled with this card and hope you like it too.

Ooh, I have lots of felt but it never crossed my mind to use it on a card! Brilliant idea.

i like the rounded corners on here with all the sharp points of the chevron. it softens it a bit, don't ya think?
