Essentials By Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

Hello! I'm excited to be guesting for the Essentials By Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

 Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest Inspired photo that is located on the CLASSroom blog. A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store.  To be eligible, you MUST use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration. There will be an inlinkz on the challenge post where you can submit your projects. 

Here is the beautiful inspiration piece for this month!

And here is what I did with it!

I used the beautiful Wild Garden Designer dies and 12 Days Companion Greetings for my card. I took some watercolor paper and blended Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, and Cracked Pistachio on it, let that dry well, then cut the flowers and leaves out. I blended some of those same colors onto my white card stock  and trimmed about 3/4 of an inch off the bottom before adhering the flowers and leaves. I layered a piece of gray chevron patterned paper along the bottom of my card before adhering the panel with foam tape.

I added some Marshmallow PPP sequins to the centers of the flowers and stamped the sentiment above with black ink.

To Check out all the details and play along in the Essentials By Ellen Pin-Sights challenge hop on over to the CLASSroom!

All of the products I used on my card are listed and linked below!
