May Flowers


This is my card for the monthly themed swap that Terry is hosting on SCS.  Each month she will post a theme and we make cards using any stamp set we believe follows that thought. This is our 29th month and the theme for May is "May Flowers".  Last month, we made cards showing off umbrellas, puddles, rain, sunshine, etc., for April Showers.  Well-that brings us to May and now we are showcasing the flowers!  I am sure there will be some wonderful cards this month. 

I inked up a newer Stampin' Up set that I had not used at home but had used at my demo Sarah's house called Lots of Lavender.  I love the watercolored look of the bundle.  I also spritzed the image with Wink of Sarah--and if you have been a follower of my blog for the past few months, you know what this is.  It gives the image panel lots of shimmer and again, is perfect for watercolor type images.  I also used my Black Jack ink by Catherine Pooler and I like that it is more gray than black.

I hope Terry and the others swappers like my card this month too!  Terry will be posting the June theme today, so be sure to come back in to see what we create!
