Winnie & Walter Share the Love Featuring: Essentials by Ellen

Hello and welcome to the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week Featuring Essentials by Ellen. We have been sharing projects mixing Winnie & Walter with Essentials by Ellen all week long, combining this with fun challenges. Today's challenge is a mood board challenge. This is the gorgeous mood board to play with:


And here is my take on it:

I was inspired by the darling bird image, the stripes of the dress, the gold elements and the watercolors on the mood board. First, I covered a card base with patterned paper. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the flowers from In Bloom: Addie's Garden, colored them with watercolors, fussy-cut them and adhered them to the card. I die-cut "wonderful" from Essentials by Ellen from pink cardstock and fun foam, layered them and adhered the word above the flowers. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Totally Awesome onto a strip of gold foiled cardstock and adhered it. Then I stamped the cute bird from LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs onto watercolor paper, colored it with watercolors, fussy-cut it and adhered it to the gold strip with foam tape. Then I finished the card off with gold sequins.

I hope you like my take on the mood board and that you'll join us for the fun challenges for your chance to win great prizes! Find all the posts for this Share the Love Week here.
