May Flowers

Spring is such a beautiful time of year with trees & flowers in full bloom.  We've had such nice weather we decided to put out the deck furniture--something usually done in late June.  Easy to get in the mood to make a card with flowers!  I was inspired by City Crafter Challenge Blog Focus on Flowers, Verve Inspiration Challenge Let it Bloom & Lil' Inker Designs Monthly Meetup. I used some scraps so will also enter Pixies Snippets Playground & the embossing works for Just Us Girls.

I began by white embossing the bloom & leaf from Lil' Inker Modern Mehndi multiple times on white cardstock.  The sheet of blooms was spritzed with Tattered Angels Timeless Lilac, Rum Raisin & Lemongrass and the leaves with Meadow Green & drops of Kiwi which came out gold, but I like it.  I used the matching dies & also cut some vellum blooms.  Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles was used to make a frame & for the card front stitching.  The hardest thing about making this card was arranging the bouquet, but I love how it turned out.  Two of the flowers were mounted with foam tape & the sentiment from the same set was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black & trimmed into a flag.  White dome glitter dots embellish the centers of the blooms.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
