April Showers Bring May Flowers!

Don't forget to enter my blog candy -->here<--.

Whenever we have rain in April it always brings to mind the saying that "April Showers Bring May Flowers!"

This is the birthday card that I made for my Gram and I promised to share with you!  I decided to make her a flower pot card with some fun handmade 3D flowers!  (Maybe you remember -->THIS<-- flower pot card I made for my Mom last year.)  This only difference is the 3D flowers.....this time I used the flower tutorial from Dawn's video...they were so fun and easy to make!  I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder to add some texture to the flower pot, and then used my MS pansy border punch and added some pearls to the middle....now that I have my Viva Decor Pearl Pen I can use that to customize pearls on all of my projects! 

Here you can see the inside of the flower pot card.  I've added Susan from Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition 1 for SCACD.
 Here is a close up of Susan.  She of course was colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen.
Here is a close up of the 3D flowers.  I used two different kinds of dp for them.  Then added LOTS of Star Dust Stickles for tons of sparkle!  The extra filler flowers are Prima Hydrangeas.

And the final view is a side view so you can see all of the dimension.  Here you can also see the stand that I made so this card can be displayed easily.  I hope you've enjoyed this creation!  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp - Things with Wings (all the butterflies)


I also have some FUN NEWS to share with you.....there is a
New release for SCACD coming soon!!!
I hope you are ready to walk on Sunshine!!!

I DO remember your mom's card from last year. It was gorgeous also - but I think when you make the flowers yourself they are even more beautiful - especially cause you have used such gorgeous paper. Your Gram will LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
Hugs, Candy
