April Madness



So so  many birthdays in April.  
Who'd a thunk?
For this one, I started with a left over piece that was blended with distress inks for another card.  A piece of scrap actually (using resources wisely). I cut the edge with scallops and dots and then stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and clear embossing powder to raise it up just a bit.
I ran cream card stock with a flower all over embossing folder through my cuttlebug and rounded off the 4 corners.  I tied some blue twine around the sentiment and attached it with dimensional tape. I glued all of that to a piece of peacock blue card stock to frame it off and then onto a cream card base.


I would like to add this card to the following  challenges if I may:

Make My Monday: Spring Flowers
Die Cutting Divas: Spring Flowers
Double D Challenge: Spring Flowers
Creative Card Crew:  Emboss (Dry or Wet)
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes
Try Stamping Tuesday: Sketch
