A Flower Cart In Bloom

It is Tuesday and that means another Great Challenge from Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. The challenge this week is to use 3 embellishments on your creation. That was easy for me seeing that I LOVE putting lot of embellishments on my cards. My embellishments are the 2 different ribbons, Dew Drops, Flower Soft, and my tissue paper flower.

We have as fantastic sponsor this week Digital Delights By Louby Loo!
They are offering the winner of this challenge a $10 Gift Certificate to spend in their store. They have super cute images just check out the DT cards this week they are wonderful and all made with Digital Delights images that were graciously given to us by Kate to play with, thanks so much Kate!
I chose the ice cream cart right away but decide that I would make it into a flower cart. i love using my Flower Soft so I drew in some pots on the cart and filled them with the Flower Soft. I also added a separate pot at the bottom to bring in some more flower color. I also wanted to make the cart a bit more playful so I used my MS border punch and and the DP the same as the back round and added it to the bottom of the cart. When I use this digi again I think I will pop up the bottom of the awning to make it look 3D.

I did try something I have never done before. I had Prima flowers in the top corner but they just didn't look right so I made my own flower out of tissue paper. It was a lot easier and quicker to make than I thought. I had a lot of fun making it!

Here are the fabulous creations from the DTs this week. Be sure to let them know how much they inspired you!
We would love to have you come play with us this week so dig out those embellishments and don't forget your Basic Grey paper. Come have some fun at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations!
