"A" is for Amazing!

Hello and TGIF, my bloggy friends! I wonder what you all are doing this weekend. I don't have any exciting plans this but hope to relax a bit in my craft space, and continue on the endless task of organizing. For today I have a card for four challenges. I varied a bit from my normal style and came up with something a little more graphic, and I think I like it! I used dies from Ellen Hutson, paper and dies from Lawn Fawn, and a sentiment from Altenew.

The Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is "A" is for... Ellen Hutson wants us to mix it up and combine products from Essentials by Ellen and Lawn Fawn. The Lawnscaping Challenge wants to see some dimension, and I combined all that with a sketch from Mojo Monday. 

I cut the flowers once from gold foil and twice from black card stock and stacked them up. The end result is nice and heavy like chipboard, and I like the shadow effect of the black underneath. The flowers and leaves were adhered with mini glue dots, and I popped up the circle a bit with Dimensionals.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Label Love (Altenew)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush (SU)
Patterned Paper: Snow Day, Let's Polka (Lawn Fawn), Classique Beauty (Authentique)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Circle and Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Bold Blossom Stand Alone dies (Essentials by Ellen)
Accessories: Gold Foil Paper (SU), Moonshine Sequins (SSS)

Have an awesome day, everyone!
