It's good to be home. Just got back from a week long business trip in Memphis - it was great to catch up with people I hadn't seen in years. We ate great BBQ and went to a few blues bars after the days of meetings. But, boy, a few nights like that just took it out of me :)
So what better place to relax than in the craft room? I decided to make a card for a few challenges. The JUGs challenge this week is to add a 3D flower as a design element. To help you with the challenge, Mona Pendleton has an awesome video on the JUGs site demonstrating how to make a great tissue paper flower. I also went with the colors provided by Dawn McVey for the Raspberry Suite Challenge #18.
I really love Kristin Bueter's inspiration card for the challenge - she took the flower and turned it into a wreath. How great is that idea?!?! If you like this card, please check out hers since it was all her creativity - I just mirrored it :)
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
