August's elements

Nat has chosen the mood board for our "elemental" challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week — as ever, just chose at least three elements to feature on your card.

I chose the woodgrain, yellow flower and striped ring. I cut an extra flower head and layered it behind the main die cut, slightly offset, and curved the petals on the front one for a bit more dimension. 

Retro Rubber has an “anything goes” theme for the current challenge so I’m linking up there too. My woodgrain stamp has been well loved since being added to my stash around 2008!

Very cool, Joanne, that little ring is a super fun design elements! I so love pretty stems, too. And of course, perfect woodgrain! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

You captured the ring perfectly!
Pretty idea to double the flower head for more dimension. Wood and flowers are always a winner with me. :)

Love that circle element and I think adding dimension to the flower was a great idea. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
