613 Avenue Create Challenge

Happy Sunday to one and all! I hope your week has started off fabulously!

We have another fantastic challenge starting today over at 613 Avenue Create.  To celebrate Earth Day, we have a color scheme as the theme for this week's challenge.  Such lovely colors I think, but I'm not so sure I matched them perfectly as I had hoped.  Ah well, I guess that's more reason to buy more Copics and paper!  Not that I  need a reason, it's that I need a supportive reason to give to my hubby LOL!

This week we are once again being sponsored by the fabulous Rick St. Dennis.  In light of Earth Day, I chose to use Isabella Gardening for my image.

I know the angle is pretty funky.  I pictured it at night and had to find a way to reduce the glare from the flash. I used flowers from my Wild Orchid Crafts stash again.  And while arranging the flowers, I had a complete DUH! moment.  I have been seeing all these lovely cards with wire twingies and I kept thinking to myself, I have got to get some green wire to make them- they are so stinkin' cute!  Then it hit me... Duh!  I cut off the wire stem all the time!  So I grabbed my wire clippings and a small paint brush and ta da!  I have my own wire twingies without having to go to the store!  Why on Earth did I not think of that sooner?!?  Sadly I didn't have the energy to go digging through the trash I had just emptied earlier that day to rescue the others from the last few cards.  But hopefully I will have enough to keep me going.

I must apologize- I've been a bit preoccupied as of late and very distracted.  I didn't make note of the paper or the Copics I used, and have forgotten to take a closer picture of the image.  I've already donated the card to Jordan's school for their Earth Day celebration, so I am unable to quickly take more pictures.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing great and I hope you have a great week ahead of you!  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.  I hope to be back soon!
