613 Avenue Create - Make A Shaped Card - "Isn't She Lovely? Isn't She Beautiful"

Hi, Crafty Peeples!  How would you like to win 3 Free Rick St. Dennis Images? 

This week at Avenue 613 Create, we are challenging you to make a shaped card.  Because of all the wonderful Decorative Dies, shaped cards have now become more and more popular!  Rick St. Dennis gave me this awesome image as a gift! I had several ideas on how to present this image, and, as usual, my final design does not reflect any of those ideas.  Ah, Creativity, thy name is Uncertainty!

 "Sunflower" by Rick St. Dennis
I don't use a lot of crystal, but I have lately been drawn to the wonderful border bling at Want2Scrap.  I was so disappointed that I had spent my craft budget for the month by the time I found out W2S was having a 50% off sale.  I like to keep a fairly large inventory of pearls and rhinestones on hand.  Sometimes just flipping through my inventory, I will be inspired

The Center Step Cut is the perfect easel for many of the Fancy Dies.  Not only do they provide wonderfully decorative edges for your frame, but also you can layer them, insert fabric/textures behind them, and you can use different orientations.
