April Showers Bring May Flowers


Okay where I live right now it's probably more like May Showers bring June flowers as it's been a rather "Wet" month here. However for the Three Clover Design Team challenge this week our theme was, MAY FLOWERS so that's what I'm sticking with.

I went with the basic layout of a card done by Lisa Johnson that is found in the current issue of Stamp It Cards (Page50) but changed the colors, stamp set, and some of the layout.

I started with a base of Pacific Point Blue cs layered with Certainly Celery that I embossed the side with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and then added designer paper (Die Cuts With A View) and some ric-rac (JoAnn Fabric). I added circles of PPB cs and punched flowers of Bashful Blue cs with tiny green brad centers.

The focal flowers are from Papertrey Ink (Green Thumb) stamp set. I added stickles to the center of the small flowers and glitter to the center of the large flower

If you have any questions about how or what was used in any of my cards feel free to email me. - Be sure to stop by the other Challenge Team members blogs to check out their May Flower projects. I'm sure you'll be delighted.
