Trendy Succulents at the Avenue

 Good morning crafty friends...

We're ready for the March challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  This month we're sharing a beautiful color board to inspire you along with our "Anything Goes" Challenge.  The twist is succulent inspiration.  Succulent plants are very trendy now and I have a few of my own.  I love the variety of shapes, sizes and easy care required.

 Here's my color board inspiration with a twist...

"Happy Retirement"

I'm a huge fan of square cards, usually 5" x 5" or 6" x 6".    They make me feel like I'm working on a small canvas and sometimes take me longer than they should.  This card was a great opportunity for me to make a retirement card for a very special person.  I know that she will love it when it arrives.  
The 6" X 6" base is layered with white matted, patterned paper.  I die cut a doily as the background for the fussy cut succulents.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut with a banner die.  It's adhered to a ribbon banner to give it dimension.
