613 Avenue Create

Happy, Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates Easter!!  Today our challenge at 613 Avenue Create is Anything Goes with Flowers.  I used a Bugaboo image - Umbrella 3.  I had an entirely different idea in my head for this card, but it didn't work out at all.  Does that ever happen to you?  I do like how it turned out however. I wanted it to have handmade medallion flowers.  It took me forever to make some, and then I didn't care for them on the card. I tried other flowers, including ones you roll up and stamped flowers, but I didn't like any of them. Finally, I remembered these Martha Stewart flowers I got at T J Maxx this weekend.  Done!

I used my newly purchased Sizzix oval dies (thanks to a sale at Joann's).  I was tired of all my images being square or rectangular. Everything is popped up.  I lightly chalked the background of the image.  The sentiment and ink are Close to My Heart.

Stop by 613 Avenue Create to see other DT members' inspiration.  And see if you won last week! 

I'm entering the following challenges:  Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes; Joanna Sheen Challenge - Weather; Addicted to CAS - Spring.
