This rustic beauty is inspired by the colors in this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge (PDCC#41) and the layout from 2Sketches4You Sketch 58. PLUS - there is a Flower Parade at The Classroom this week, too!!
Italy is "hands down" the place I'd go if anyone (hint, hint) were to send me a free, all-inclusive vacation to Europe. Many, many years ago (before the boys arrived) we got to go to England, France and Scotland. Now the closest I get to Italy would be to sit on the porch swing drinking a glass of wine while singing, "Que Cera Cera" (but that is Spanish not Italian - it's the thought that counts, right?)
I used my Nestabilities circle dies to cut out the flower from Cosmo Cricket paper and roughed up the edges with my Heidi Swapp distresser. I used the Tim Holtz tissue tape on this card too! I love that stuff - Did you know that it is repositionable? Zva Crystals and A Muse sentiment/gingham paper finish my ode to Italy.
