April's Challenge Card

The Challenge for this month was:
Circle card
Magnolia image
Paper doily
Pastel colours
Flair or Wood Veneer

The hardest part of this card was to make the circular shape to it.
I don't have a die big enough, or a circle cutter for that matter.
So I used a few different things to get my circle shapes. A coaster from Montana's Steakhouse, a page from a Christmas ornament chipboard book, and a plate.  Use what you have…right ;)

These Magnolia images are just so cute. I share how I did the sky in this post "Here".
If you look just below the flags, you will see the paper doily.
And Look, I used some lace again!

I think I did pretty good with the pastel colours. I seem to lean toward more vintage colours or deep/earth colours.
We were suppose to use flair or wood veneer. I wanted to use wood veneer as I have quite a bit of it. But nothing I had, looked quite right. So I used this small heart flair.
It is hidden amongst the flowers.
Actually it is a brad…shhhhhh.

I made this card into an easel card.
These cards are so fun to make, and I like that they can be displayed so nicely :)

Now thats not all…..I also made a video :)

I also went back and posted my video on my April tag on yesterday's post :)

I hope you all had a very creative Wednesday :)
