Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! :)

I'm just swinging on in to share a card I made for the current Virginia's View Challenge!

Boy, I had a challenge with coming up with something! lol I don't know why?!...But thankfully, something worked out for me! And as funny as it may seem, this is one of the reason I love these challenges! ;)

Here's my card.

I took three different color markers and just overlapped them (slightly), going from darkest to lightest. Hopefully, you can see the different tones?...Then after, used the Gardenia Blooms die from Neat & Tangled. (Which if it ain't the 'hoop die', it's the 'Gardenia Blooms die'! lol I just love these dies!) After die cutting my piece, I did take out the inside of each bloom and then just adhered it to a white piece of cardstock, before adding it to my card. So, what you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day! :)
