613 Avenue Create #159-Anything Goes-Option Stylish & Elegant

Today is the birthday of our First Lady Michelle Obama. In her honor, our Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to create a stylish and elegant card.  Mrs. Obama carries herself with grace and elegance always. I'm sure she's having a wonderful birthday.

My card uses an image from our sponsor Beccy's Place - Pink Iris. The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette is also a sponsor. As usual, everything is from my stash. I embossed the card front and used paper doilies as a background for the flower image. The image is cut using a Nestie. I dusted the background with chalk after coloring the iris with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used a die for the sentiment. Finally, I added some pink pearls. I think this card will be my older sister's birthday card, by the way.

Please do take the time to visit, check out last week's winners, and enter this challenge.  We just love seeing your projects.

I'm entering these challenges:  A Gem of a Challenge #160- Female Birthday; Crafty Friends #23 - Anything Goes; Crafting with Friends #12- Anything Goes.

I hope you're able to get some crafting in today :)
