Best Day

I completely spaced on creating my post for yesterday's new Tuesday Throwdown challenge!!
It was on my mind all day, but I kept distracting myself by looking at other peoples blogs, and ideas, and Pinterest...and I completely forgot!

So this weeks Tuesday Throwdown challenge is Critters!
Our sponsor for this week is the lovely Heart Song Designs.  So many cute images there!  I have used the image Ana & Flower for my card.  Colored in with colored pencils.

I cut the flower and leave foliage out with my cricut and layered them together.  The center of the flower is a large black brad that I heated with my heat gun and then dipped into yellow embossing powder over, and over, and over.  You can still see a little of the black on the edges...I couldn't seem to get it to thicken no matter how many layers I added.  But it still turned out cool and is a great embellishment for the card.

The sentiment is a sweet one from Create with TLC that I trimmed into a tag and tucked behind the flower.
I hope you will join us this week at Tuesday Throwdown!  Such a fun challenge and a great prize!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
    Deconstructing Jen Sketch #55
