Saying Hello with Azaleas


Hello!  Do you have azaleas blooming in your garden?  I do not. The ones we had have not survived our winters but I still love their blooms.  So I chose to use Power Poppy Azalea stamp on this card.  I was playing with a recently purchased Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies Regal Frame to create this design.  I fussy cut  the Azalea image and attached with foam tape to the layered card.  Other supplies: Pink and White CS, Cuttlebug EF Gingham, Memento Espresso Truffle and Lady Bug Inks, Copics R11, 81,83, RV11 , G20, 40, E25,35, Power Poppy Sentiment from Dahlias.

Challenges:
Power Poppy:  Power & Spark Challenge- Cut It Out
Simon Says Color Swatch
City Crafter Challenge Blog: Focus on Flowers
Papertake Weekly Challenge: In the Garden- Azaleas grow in gardens.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says choose one or more colors from the swatch. I used the pink and green from the swatch.




 Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
