    Hi everyone, Here's my latest card using the gorgeous April kit.

    card_zpse7864ca5.jpg

    And this is how it came together:

    1_zps673b6846.jpg
    For my base card, I cut a piece of cream colored cardstock, 8.1/4 x 11.3/4, and folded it double.

    2_zps765fcb76.jpg
    For my first layer, I cut a piece of PP at 5.3/4 by, a little under 8.1/4 Distressed the edges and glued it to my base card.

    3_zps26cac647.jpg
    For my second layer, I cut a piece of PP at 7.5 x 5.5 and then gave the top a little shape. (I had to do mine in 2 parts, because of working with my left-overs) Distressed the edges, but didn't glue it down yet.

    4_zpscac1455b.jpg
    The next layer was cut at 5 x 6 I distressed the edges and glued it to the blue lacey paper.

    5_zps4b8885c5.jpg
    Then I cut this strip, which measures 1.1/8 x 12 PLUS that little barcode end.

    6_zps19d345ea.jpg
    Folded the strip around the 2 layers (the blue and the white) and at this point I only glued the
    2 ends together. On the right side, I pressed it down to get a nice folding line, then flipped it over, and secured on the backside of the blue paper, with a drop of glue.

    Then on the front, I added a drop of glue, under the strip, where the red mark is.

    Then for a fun detail, I cut a strip of paper at 4 x 1.3/4 and I used a border punch at 1 end.

    9_zpse0c3762f.jpg
    I cut 1 little part off, this is going to be a tag for my sentiment.

    10_zps675363a8.jpg
    I slided this punched paper under the paper strip

    11_zps535d282a.jpg
    On the cross marked spot, I added glue

    12_zps967a006a.jpg
    and glued it together. The seam was rolled back under the paper strip.

    13_zps43f013d2.jpg
    Then I took 4 of these sprigs

    14_zps26b5ef1b.jpg
    fold them double – cut the loops – and glued them in place

    15_zpsdad9b37d.jpg
    I cut a piece of tulle at 8 x 5.5 (you can use cheesecloth just as well)

    16_zps3af37558.jpg
    ruffled it up and tied it together with some twine and glued it in place. I also glued a string of the blue bling, like in the picture.

    17_zps57c829c5.jpg
    Then from corrugated cardboard, I cut some petals and made a flower out of it.

    *****TIP*****
    For my corrugated cardboard: I used the box our kits comes in. Cut a 6×6 square out of it, sprayed it with water, let it sit for a few seconds, and then peeled off the top paper layer, and there you have your own corrugated cardboard.

    19_zps296a95c0.jpg
    I rounded the petals a little by rolling the edges between my fingers. Then from the gorgeous bling that came in our kit, I cut a (dice) figure 5 out to dress up the center of the flower. Using some hot glue, I glued my flower in place, just like this.

    20_zps797cd082.jpg
    Filled the cap with a tiny flower.

    21_zps03cec5a0.jpg
    I inked up the little tag

    22_zps76a638f8.jpg
    wrote my sentiment on it, and glued it in place.

    23_zps64d3e972.jpg
    Then for detail I added some ink and gesso to my flower and added(liquid) pearls in the center of the bling

    24_zpse2bd0137.jpg
    and of course, some on the top of my card as well.

    and I called it done! I hope you like it.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                    Hi, When I went to see your tutorial, all your pictures were replaced by a placeholder from Photobucket. When I clicked on each placeholder, the image showed up, but that sort of ruined the ability to scroll down through your technique to see what you had done.
                    Were you aware of this?
