Essentials by Ellen May Mix It Up Challenge

Hello!  I have a card to share today that I made for the current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge.

I placed my first order with Ellen Hudson recently, and I cannot tell you how impressed I am with their service (FAST shipping), and the quality of the products I ordered (and their packaging is fabulous too!)  I used the Mondo Magnolia stamp set and die to make my flower; the paper is from the Heidi Swapp 6X6 Favorite Things paper pad.  The little cluster of buds next to the word "hello" were cut with the Essentials by Ellen Wild Garden die set.  The pink scalloped frame is from PTI.  I added some glossy accents to the word "hello" (which I fussy cut), and some Wink of Stella to the center of the flower and the buds.  The Avery Elle products I used on my card are from their Custom Panels Die set (the curved edge die underneath the sentiment, and the full card die to cut the black and white striped paper).  I'm looking forward to seeing what new products Essentials by Ellen has coming, love their style!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Love this striking card Diane. The word background is a wonderful foil for the flowers and it is such a pleasing mixture of colour and pattern!
