I'm moving off the Boulevard...

And back into my humble shed. lol!
Hi everyone and happy Saturday!
For today's Modern Sugar Blvd. challenge, Melissa wanted us to create a different shaped card. This was a fun challenge! Here is what I came up with using one of my favorite lines from the MSB store by Pam West:

Now you see why I like this line so much? Because I can Flower Soft everything!
This card came together late last night (thus the Ott lite blaring off the rooftop). I was trying to figure out a way to have a brick shed and then came up with this idea.
First I copied the image on to white cardstock, then I ran it again on this wonderful brick DP from my stash. After I colored it in, I cut out the main parts of the image and pieced it on to the brick DP. The neat thing was that I could save myself the tedious task of cutting around all the leaves because there were already some leaves on the DP itself. Here is a closer look:

Pretty neat-oh eh? I was so happy with the results that I went crazy with the flowers. haha! If this was my real potting shed, I would love for it to look like this.
Since this image prints a little further up, I added Winter Green Flower Soft to the bottom to make it look like bushes/grass:

Today is my last challenge card with Modern Sugar Blvd. It has been a fun DT term and although Candie and Amy have graciously asked us all back for a second round, I have committed myself to other projects and will be stepping down. I will be proud to call myself an original Sugar though! Huge hugs to the girls there, I will be sure to continue stalking them and all of their successes.
I hope you all decide to join us this week - what fun shaped card can you come up with? Visit the blog HERE for more awesome DT samples, and to upload your link. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Saturday! I am signing off as a Sugar...
*Love and Aloha*

FABULOUS!! Wow, I really feel like I'm peeking to your garden shed! Very cool and all the flower soft gives this so much dimension and texture. Very nice.

From one original sugar to another - the walk down the Blvd. has been fun.
