Anything With Wheels Challenge

A new challenge theme is up and running at Double D challenges and it is 

(Something that has Wheels)
We have an inspiration board just for a few ideas!

I had several things to choose from but n the end I let the upper
right corner inspire me as I had a yet to be used Cottage Cutz die
that seemed to fit the theme perfectly!
I like to hit the Cottage Cutz sales whenever they have them and this is where
this die "Garden Wheelbarrow' came from!
I have to say I have created with lots of Cottage Cutz dies but the wheelbarrow
was a tricky one with the placement of the handle bar.
I first cut in white card stock scraps (snippets) and colored everything in with Copics.
My normal is to cut from scraps of colored papers
but with so many little pieces and colors I thought this was an easier way of
doing things!  I popped each little flower up with foam for a tiny bit
of dimension!  The paper is Echo Park Spring Fling, the lattice doily die
is one I had previously cut and from my stash.  The sentiment is
Elizabeth Craft Designs!

I 'wheelie' hope you will join our challenge at
Double D and see all the 'wheelie' cute designs by the DT teams!

Donna Phelan said...

So beautiful! Who wouldn't want a wheelbarrow full of pretty posies...on a card or in their yard?!? Love the dies, they're awesome! The doily one is so pretty too! Pretty Designer Papers and a perfect sentiment! Love it all!

Vicki said...

Delightful! This is such a happy card with the pretty colors and floral paper. A wheel barrow full of flowers certainly works for me. That fleur-de-lis doily is awesome.

Darlene said...

What a beautiful card Diane! LOVE that wheel barrow full of posies and your background paper is perfect! Well done my friend (as always).

Leslie Miller said...

Cutest little wheelbarrow full of flowers! Just my size. Love the lattice doily, and the field of flowers is such a good match it appears as though the flowers in the wheelbarrow were picked from it. It kinda blows me away, actually. Great sentiment. You know I'm a Cottage Cutz fan... don't make me go shopping again, Diane!

Barbara said...

I love the wheelbarrow filled with petite flowers on that perfect background paper. Genius to place the wheelbarrow on the white lacey doily.

Birgit said...

This card would brighten even the darkest of days. It is delightful and so cheerful! The background paper is sweet and just perfect for your wheelbarrow full of posies. This is adorable Diane!

Judy Woodland said...

How adorable! I love that your die cut flowers match the ones in the patterned paper. This is such a cute design, I like everything about it.

Your card is so lovely! I love the flower patterned paper you chose for your background and it was such a nice idea to use a doily mat under the wheelbarrow.

Thanks for participating in our It’s All About Me! challenge at Cut it Up!

I wheelie love your card, Diane! That wheelbarrow is adorable, especially filled with gorgeous flowers and placed over a colorful and perfect background! I hit those sales, too. They make the best dies! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Oh Diane - your wheelbarrow full of lovely flowers is fantastic! Love how you hit on the idea of colouring in white die cuts rather than hunting out a thousand teeny snippets of coloured paper/card!
