Sweet May

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today.
This week our challenge is an inspiration photo with an option to add Dogwoods or Cherry Blossoms. Being Spring is finally here, and I know my own Dogwood will be in full bloom in the next few weeks, I was inspired to make
my own Dogwood blooms.

Here is a photo of my blossoms from last year.

And, here is my card.

I used Spellbinders Dogwood die, cutting the petals from crepe paper. I inked the petal edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink. The stamens were dipped in glue, then in lemon Flower Soft. Tip: (I wanted to mention, you could use this same die to make a Cherry Blossom, just by cutting and adding an extra petal). I set these aside to dry, then embossed my cream card stock using Darice Cherry Blossom embossing folder.

I cut a pretty a panel from Bellisima A5 Paper Pack using the Marianne Design Large Oval.

The Sweet May words are from the Graphic 45 Time To Flourish paper pad. A little butterfly was added, using the smallest die from Joy! Crafts Butterfly Trio and LeCreme Pearls. I simply finished my card with a bow.

Thank you for visiting with me today...and I hope you will join in our challenge with us...we would love to see your creation!!
