AEI♥U Challenge--March

 
So this month's Avery Elle Challenge was using the inspiration photo below........a challenge indeed!
I was drawn to the colors, the weathered wood, and the ombre look.  These are what I tried to incorporate into my card.
 
I've used Petals & Stems from Avery Elle......this is such a beautiful floral set.  So many options for this set......so glad I added it to my collection!  I love the font for the sentiments........
 
Thinking of You

 
I stamped my florals onto Kraft and trimmed out and distressed the edges.  I added Enamel Accents (white) to the flower centers for just a teeny bit of dimension.  I loved the look of the weathered wood in the photo......so I trimmed down a square of burlap and distressed it with my white ink!  My version of ombre was done using several shades of textured white core cardstock and then was sanded for the distressed look.
 
 
 
And since this is my version of "ombre", I'm going to send this over to the Ombre Challenge at Moxie Fab World!
 
That's it for me today.......back to a thing called "work" today!!!  Spring Break is over however we received almost 6 inches of snow yesterday!!!  ughhh
