Celebrate! Quick Quotes Monthly Challenge for April

Good Friday!  Alicia here today with your Quick Quotes April Challenge! April is a good month to Celebrate!  So let's celebrate Easter, Spring, births, or create cards anticipating next month's graduations or Mother's Day.  Your entry can include a layout, card or mixed media creation just Celebrate something!  I chose to create a layout celebrating my wedding. What better way to celebrate than with the Quick Quotes Celebrate collection!  This photo is of me and my mother, whom I also want to celebrate.

Here are some highlights of the layout.  I layered some laser die cut flowers on top of the Quick Quotes metal flower.  I hid a Cricut cut butterfly under the ribbon.  It is hard to tell from the pictures but I created an embossed image on the yellow paper with clear embossing powder and Versamark ink to give it a subtle texture.

To create the flowers I first colored them with Powder Puff chalking inks, then I folded all the petals. Finally, I put them all together with a brad and chalk the edges again. Folding and creasing the petals gives them so much dimension even though they are flatten again.
