I chose Inspiration Photo #2 for the LO, and listed my journaling.  I also used circles (as seen in photo #4), for extra inspiration. I may have a couple of extra shades of green in there, I went a little crazy pulling everything out of my stash that was green :) Trust me, I have a lot! But, I also wanted to use this photo...so, I was trying to make the green in his shirt 'fit in' with the rest of the LO.

Always:


Supply List:
American Crafts - Cardstock (Off White)
Stampin' Up! - Cardstock (Crumb Cake); Stamps (Fabulous Florals, The Art of Life, Small Script); Ink (Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive); Linen Thread, Rhinestone; ribbon
Spellbinders - Label die
Unknown - button

I chose Inspiration Photo #1 for my card, and tried to make a bouquet similar to the one shown for my 'clustered elements' Designer's Challenge.  I also used a circle again (as seen in photo #4), and chose a label die that had a circle base.  This card may look a little fussy, but honestly, what took the longest was cutting out the stems...and even that didn't take much time. They all had pretty straight lines.
LOVED these colors (green is my fave), and I hope you join in the fun.  Remember, the deadline for all is the end of the month...


Thanks for looking!

I saw the card on FB but I am glad I stopped by to see the LO too- I always need ideas for my boy layouts. I am so much better with frilly stuff- thanks as always for the great ideas!

That LO and photo are adorable! Your card is beautiful. Love the dimension to it and the pretty background that really makes it all pop!
