Forget Me Not Challenge at Double "D"

Hello my friends!
This is an exciting day for myself and my friend Dar 
with our very first challenge at the Double "D"!
You can find the challenge HERE!

We both have the most amazing Design Team
and I am sure when you pop on over and see,
you will recognize most of the designers there!
We also have a 'fabby' prize so you might want to join in with us!
A  little is the prize being offered,

as well as a Top Pick and a Top 3.

Out theme is "Forget Me Not....
meaning to use blue and flowers and the inspiration tile board
shown below!

I made a round card....
and just love how it turned out

I was looking through my embossing folders
and came across this one, which not only have I never used before 
(NBUS) as Darnell calls
but also had totally forgotten I even had it!

I embossed, then used a Spellbinders die to cut out only a portion of it.
Underneath that is a 'round" shape card  and a lacey die cut using 
Cheery Lynn Designs Sophies Heart die.

The little wheel barrow is one I had cut from my Cricut (Walk In My Garden cartridge) eons ago.

I filled it with tinny 'forget me nots' which I made
by 'painting' Bashful Blue Twinkling H2o's on.
The flowers were cut with a Cottage Cutz die...
 the centers were made with yellow Perfect Pearls.
I added a tiny bunny (can you see him?)....
and the word 'seeds' is part of the EB folder.

The pretty ribbon bow is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

So there you have head on over to the
and join in with us...hope to see you there!

Entering the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground .... Snippets
Craft-Dee Bowz .... ATG with handmade bow
Crafty Boots ... Old (EB folder) New (Perfect Pearls)
Fantabulous Cricut .... Something New (Perfect Pearls)
