Twisted Elegance

Birthday EleganceHi there :) Today I have my first twisted easel card!! I don’t believe I haven’t made one before, as I love the look!  I used the stunning Camellia image from Aurora Wings, and colored it in my all time favorite color combination. I just purchased the lattice die, part of a set – Butterfly and Lattice – from Sizzix. I can tell that this die will be getting a lot of use!! I dug through my flowers, and didn’t have any that were the “right” shade of red, so I touched a few up with my markers :)  I arranged the flowers over a die cut fluorish by Cheery Lynn.  I wasn’t sure what to do for a sentiment, but came across the “enjoy” in my stash, and paired it up with the Happy Birthday, that I inherited from my mom’s stash when she died….the set that it comes from is probably close to 50 years old!!

I’d like to enter the following challenges with this card:

Aurora Wings Challenge Blog – #50 My Secret Garden

Incy Wincy – Black & White plus One Other Color
