New Challenge at a2z Scrapbooking Supplies

If it's the first of the month, it's time for a new challenge at a2z Scrapbooking! We're going with "Make Something Ugly" this time around. It's a really difficult challenge for talented people like us. Here's my card.



APRIL FOOL'S! 
(It's really a card on Etsy that you can buy, but ew, Jabba is just so ugly!)

Yep, it's April first and that means you can prank anyone you can and they can't complain :)

Actually, I'm really bad at April Fool's Day jokes and the only one that ever worked was a Grilled Cheese made out of cake that the kids and I gave my hubby like this one. You use pound cake and toast in a skillet and then add frosting in just the right yellow so it looks like American cheese. You can watch this video to see exactly how they made their "soup" and "sandwich."


The REAL April Challenge at a2z is "Flower Power" and you're challenged to use flowers in some way. Any company's products will work to enter to win a digital stamp but if you use your Hero Arts, you can win an extra gift code to the store, plus the free digi of your choice

Here's my flowery card. I used alcohol inks to make a panel and then cut the panel with the Dragonfly Fancy die. I made the wings from vellum and Diamond Stickles. The Branch Wreath die doesn't come with flowers, but I found the digital flowers Pretty Blossoms from Hero Arts worked great. I printed them small and colored with colored pencils.

Happy April!
