LSC259 ~ Inspired by the Presidents

Today's challenge on SCS was to create a card inspired by the Presidents. I am not sure this card exactly counts for the challenge (you know I say that a lot), but it is was the first thing that came to my mind when I thought of the President.

You all know I live in the DC area. I actually live in a suburb half way between DC and Annapolis, I've lived in the DC Metro area my entire life. One of the fun things we did when we were little was the Easter Egg roll on the White House Lawn. So when I read about this challenge I thought that I could make an Easter Card.

I created another puffy flower, this one is the regular one. You can find the tutorial for this flower here. If you make one of your own, please let me know I would love to see yours :o)

Thanks for stopping by,

Stamps: Well Scripted
Paper: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Shades of Spring DP
Inks: Orchid Opulence
Extras: Scallop Circle punch, Crop-a-Dial, Medium White Brad, Celery grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals, Butterfly embosslit, purple rhinestones.
