4 Crafty Chicks Guest Designer Post

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be back guest designing for 4 Crafty Chicks! I will be joining them again for the month of April. For my first challenge back our theme is flowers. We all love our flowers, so I hope you will come and play along! For my project I created a layout.

I'm still loving the new lines from My Mind's Eye- I used a couple of them for this project. So much fun to work with! I used a sketch design from Artful Delight. This is an Instagram photo of my big guy Cash.
Because the challenge focus is flowers I decided to make my own. I cut some different shaped flowers from the Mother's Day Bouquet cart from different patterned papers. I layered them and curled the edges with a petal roller and then added a button or brad.
I liked the simplicity of Doodletype for the title. This is the shadow feature. I was going to layer a lighter color over it, but ended up liking the solid black.
I'm still loving my Smash date stamp. I want to use it on everything!! I hope you have enjoyed my layout, and will come and join us with your gorgeous flower creations!
