Double D Challenges Flowers Galore

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges and is being hosted by
'Team Darlene'.
I Design For

As usual I had to join in as I just can't resist these beautiful mood boards!

The theme, using the inspiration mood board below is
'Flowers Galore'.



Sometimes I have the best ideas for what I am going to create,
sit down at my table and do some something totally different,
which is what I did with my project here.



I thought it would be fun to pull out one of my dies I haven't used
in quite some time, my window die (all dies I have used I will list below, most can be purchased at Dies R Us).
This is such a fun die to work with, as you can create about any scene you want.
If you look real close you will see I have a kitty slightly hidden in the plants.
Do you suppose the other kitty is waiting for him to come out and play?

Another great thing about this card as I was able to use numerous 'snippets' of scraps of paper to create this!

After making my flowers, I added 
Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black 
to the center of each.
This stuff comes in 60 colors
plus there are glitter ones and glow in the dark drops.
I love using these fun drops!

Make sure and take a peek at the Double D Challenges
to be even more inspired by the DT creations,
these girls just keep raising the bar, challenge after challenge!
