Papertrey April Blog Hop

I'm getting my post in for this month's blog hop a little later than I want to, but last month I missed it altogether, so I'm in good form this month! ;)

This month's challenge photo was...

My colors didn't come out as close as I was going for, but I think the general feel is there! I added some detail photos so the clear-embossed detail can be seen.




Edited to add, several hours later - I also made another card for the blog hop today that I started yesterday but didn't finish until this afternoon. I was playing around with trying some rolled flowers with fabric and I was concerned that the card was not going to turn out because my fabric flowers were not turning out the way I was hoping..but I think in the end it came out, so I thought I'd add it to my blog hop post for the latecomers! ;)
