613 Avenue Create - Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy (early) Sunday and happy Mother's Day to the Moms, Grandmas and all the other special women who are celebrating today!  I am here to share my next card as Guest Designer for the 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog.  The theme this week is "anything goes with the option of creating shaped cards".  They are once again being sponsored by the very talented Rick St. Dennis and I was lucky to get to choose another image from Rick's shop to create with.

Here is my shaped card:


My shaped base and mats are SU Mellow Moss and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Chanteuse collection.  I used Spellbinders Grand Labels Four for the easel base and front.  The beautiful image is La Belle Helene from Rick St. Dennis.  You can find it in his Etsy shop here.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a few accents with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some pretty lace, a spray of pearl beads and 5 different Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my card.  Here are the WOC flowers I used: 1" Pink Tone Roses, 3/4" Pink Open Roses, Mixed Pink Carnations, 2 Tone Pale Pink Aster Daisies and Baby Pink Small Gardenia Flowers.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations from Team A of the DT.  I'm sure they would be thrilled if you joined in on the challenge!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts #76 (3 or more different flowers)
Anything Goes Challenge #92 (shaped, not square)

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
