FCCB #326 - 3D/Dimensional Project

I do hope that all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. We had hot hot weather here, and the day was perfectly gorgeous. I had a delightful day.

Our new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to create a 3D/Dimensional project.  I made pillow boxes for my husband's birthday. I put yummy chocolates inside. They made a nice presentation.

Here's my creation:

613 Avenue Create #209 - Anything Goes - Twist Mainly Blue

Wow, it's May already!  Our Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create this month has a color twist - Mostly Blue.  This challenge made me realize that blue is a color that I don't use a lot, so it was good for me.  I decided to see what blue inks I had and use them to ink up some NBUS flower stamps.  I am very pleased with this card:

I didn't actually add leaves for the flowers.  I used the small vines to fill in some of the white space between the flowers since I chose not to overlap them at all. I also decided not to stamp the centers. Instead I colored them with a light gray marker. I die cut the white panel, mounted it on blue card stock and added a label sentiment.

Card stock:  Recollections 60 lb and 110 lb
Stamps:  Altenew Whimsical Flowers and Label Love
Inks:  Memento Blue Danube,VersaMagic Turquoise Gem, Memento Bahama Blue, VersaMagic SeaBreeze, CTMH Topiary, Memento Black Tuxedo
Die:  Unknown (purchased at a garage sale)
