Hey Vicky:)
I just saw your tutorial in the Step by Step mag and wanted to send you a congratulations! I always feel so pleased to see people that I "know" from our online community.
Take care and have fun making your wildly creative beauties!

It does look finished now - somehow didn't before.

Thanks Shay & Tracy!
The tutorial is my first ever - so I was very happy - and I got paid!!!!
Its funny isn't it - you get that gut feeling when something doesn't feel quite finished.

I was in line at the crack of dawn waiting to board a plane, crapping on endlessly to my partner about this ring.. how it was pink felt with REAL plant growing out of it..yes.. a ring..you wear it... and getting stares from serious men in suits... so much fun

hold the phone...that's a real plant?

Grrl+Dog - thats funny! (but not about being awake at the crack of dawn).

Andrea - yes its a real plant! I think that air plants are supposed to be difficult to kill? They only need a splattering of water every 2 weeks in summer and every 4 in winter - plus the felt doesn't mind getting a bit wet! So far so good!
