Paper Sweeties May Inspiration Challenge #31 - 'Celebrate Mom'

April showers bring May flowers! May also brings Mother's Day! The Paper Sweeties May challenge starts today, and we're celebrating Mom.


What better way to honor her than with a card adorned with some of those gorgeous May flowers!?!


I used stamps and dies from a couple different sets for this card. Believe it or not, the flower "pot" is actually a cupcake from the Sending Sweet Thought set! I thought the flower pot in the inspiration photo looked a lot like a cupcake wrapper, so I went with it and it worked! The tiny little flowers are also from this set; however, the big, bright roses are from Pretty Posies. I also used sequins from the Sweetheart Mix.


I colored all the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol Oil. A doily, patterned paper from Amy Tangerine, a wooden bird from Studio Calico and some alphabet stickers also make up this card.
