Guest Designing with Crafting By Designs

Hello, and welcome back!  

I have such exciting news today once again...I've been asked to be a Guest Designer with Crafting by Designs for this week!

The twist on this challenge was to create a 3D flower.  The wonderful sponsor is Fred She Said...check out the Crafting by Designs blog for the prize being offered!

I found a fantastic digi at TLC Creations that I thought would work perfectly for what I had in mind.  I fell in love with the sentiment on this image!
I sized and printed out the image with my Silhouette Cameo.  I chalked a few of the flowers and greenery, and then set out to find the 3D flower set I knew I'd had in my stash for the last year or so.  I used a few of the flat flower die cuts, added some of the 3D flowers and then proceeded to make a few rolled flowers with a new die I hadn't used yet.  I can tell that practice will make perfect on those rolled flowers eventually!  LOL
I inked up the card with some brown ink and also used a stencil to add some faint dots on the paper to give it an aged look.  The beautiful bird charm is from a set I found at my local Walmart.  It just completed the card!  I tied a thin gold twine through it, and secured the bow.

Let's take a look...


Here's a close up of that wonderful sentiment...

  
And a closer look at the 3D flowers...


I was very pleased with how this turned out!

I would like to thank Crafting by Designs once again for the chance to play along as a guest designer.  I had so much fun creating this with your 3D flower challenge in mind.

And, I hope I have been able to inspire my blog readers to play along with this challenge.  There are so many different types of 3D flowers to create...you can use metal dies, your cutting machine, etc. Before you know it, those flowers will have you thinking of spring!

Until next time...
