More May Flowers.....

Hello everyone: Hope you are not too cold, up here in Crown Point, IN. is about 54 degrees and yesterday, we had some flurries, can you believe it? Sheeesh!! every time we think Winter is over, we're once again, bring out the thick coats and turn up the heater, oh well.....that's the way it is.
Anyway, here's this flowery card I created to invite you to come to the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog and play along, our theme is
"May Flowers".

This pretty wreath is from a 2012 Flourishes set called "Mother's Wisdom".
I stamped it on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink, clear heat embossed it and colored with a few SU markers and also, a bit of Sakura Koi watercolors.
The Butterfly is from Penny Black and the sentiment from another Flourishes set called "Tulips for Friends".
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, the little flower from a Power Poppy set called .....and the little butterfly from Penny Black, it was stamped to hide a boo boo I made when I dropped my pink marker on my panel, Sheeesh!!

I hope you come and play along with my teammates and me at the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

  1. Maria, Your card is so pretty, inside and out! The wreath is colored perfectly. I would say you captured the essence of May Flowers!

  2. That flower wreath is colored so spectacularly! Wow! What a stunning card Maria!

  3. Wow! Just look at all the colors and you embossed it too !!
    You did a good job of covering your ink spot with that cute little butterfly !

  4. Beautiful Flourishes wreath! Nice to see color here in NE it's too cold for things to bud and grow. If these are for your daughters they're sure to love these cards.

  5. This is one of the prettiest flower wreaths ever! I have Marcy's Power Poppy digital version, but never had this particular stamp. Your coloring knocks it out of the park! Your butterfly inside looks like it was meant to be there all along. Those boo boos... I did the same thing today -- dropped a marker on my image while I was coloring and had to do a cover up. Turned out better for it, just like how the inside of your card is prettier with the butterfly!

  6. Mooie kaart. Bedankt dat je ons bij Creative Craft Cottage-uitdaging hebt bijgewoond. Nog een fijne dag
