Flowery Hello


Hi everyone.  Time for the next challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More.  This week we have this photo below for inspiration ...






Prize:  3 digital images


I focused on the wood floor and the ballerina's white dress that looks like a flower.  I used balsa wood to die-cut the postage stamp panel.  I added a small, white leaf sprig with white blooms and a hello die (three layers glued together for thickness).  I added three clear rhinestones to finish.

It took me a while to come up with my design, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Very CAS.  I LOVE this hello die ... can you tell??!! :)  I've only had it a short time and already used it on three cards. :)

I hope you'll come and check out the challenge ... click HERE to find out the details and to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the Design Team.







Paper:  White (Neenah)
Accessories & Tools:  Postage Stamp Nestie (Spellbinders), small hello die (Simon Says), Lavish Branch die (Memory Box), Hydrangea punch (Martha Stewart), balsa wood, clear rhinestones
