PYC Challenge #3 - Anything Goes

Welcome to the Parade Your Crafts Blog Challenge #3.

 This is one of my favorite challenges "Anything Goes"

This is where you get to bust out your creativity and make a project that you have
been day dreaming about all day.

Lisa at the Paper Parade sent me this beautiful paper from Authentique.  The collection is Remembrance.  Sometimes when I get double sided paper I really love one side but not the other.
Not with this collection.  I really could not decide which side I loved the most.  The collection comes with on side of sentiments that are wonderful for the making "Thinking of You" or Condolence cards.
 Lisa did provide me with one sheet that there was no way I would cut because it is too beautiful.
  I think I will save it to make a memorial page of my Mother.   

At first I thought about doing a layout.  I am a sucker for flowers and have many photograph of them.  After thinking about it, I decided to make a card.... that turned into two.  

I used two different sheets of the paper.  The Remembrance Two and Three.   I stamped the bottle using a new stamp I scored at a great price.  The stamp is from hero arts.  I added a couple of flower and a button.   

For the first card I used a little bit of the Platinum stickles give the flower a little sparkle.  
 I also rubbed some on the sentiment.    

For the second card I used some of the scraps from the other side.  
This way you cold see the beautiful papers in this collection.  

The only paper I did not use from this collection is that small piece of black card stock that framed the sentiment with.  I found that I did not need anything else to complete my card.

Now it is your chance to show us your stuff.  Link up your project to the PYC Challenge # 3.
