"APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS"
and here in Maine, we not only had showers, but hail, snow, ice, winds. We've been wondering if it would ever feel like spring. This week, my crocus's burst forth in color, the daffodil's lifted their heads and the grass began to "green up". Spring has found us. In honor of spring - my challenge is to do anything you want, but please include "May Flowers". Any flower you wish - as many or as few as you'd like - but your project must contain some sort or form of flower!
I used Kraft paper for the base of my cards and then used a technique my sister showed me. I stamped a flower design using my versamark stamp pad all over the background of the card. I stepped out of my comfort zone with these two cards and used earth tones - something I don't normally use. The first card I used the "Freshly Picked" cartridge for the flower pot and the second card I used my Stampin Up herb stamp set.
I'm really pleased with how they both came out.
The rules for the challenge are simple:
1. Become a follower if you aren't already.
2. Leave a comment on this post.
3. Link your challenge project with Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
4. Visit my sisters blog and check out her project!
Blog Candy? Well of course, there is always blog candy for our challenges! For this challenge, the winner will receive the two cards that I featured! In addition to the cards, I will include some things from my stash - cutouts, etc.
