FOSTV challenge--- May Theme

Hope you'll join the challenge this week at Friends of Speedy TV at Home of Speedy TV. The challenge this week is to make a card with a May theme. I think flowers says it all for May. You know Spring Showers bring May Flowers. :-)

I'm using a Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp set called Black Eye Susans for Encouragement. Yes, I did my flowers in blue...I'm not one to think you can't get off the path a bit and do something that isn't real life. The sentiment is also from Mark's Finest Papers and is Mother's Magnolias. I split the sentiment to fit the nestabilitie.


If you play the challenge with us this week, here is the stamp set you could possibly win. It is called Pucker Up.

Recipe:
Stamps-MFP, A Heinrich Co.-Black Eyed Susans for Encouragement and Mother's Magnolias (split sentiment)
Paper-MFP Old World Gold, Aqua light, and  Premium cover white cs
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-EK Success zig zag chain punch, Spellbinders oval nestabilitie, Copics

I think I love every blue card you have ever made. This one is no exception. That flower is gorgeous. OK - I want the lemon set if for no other reason than the comment about chocolate. What a cool saying. I like how empowering it is!!! Hope you had a great weekend. Hugz!

In VT there are daisy like flowers that are blue so this isn't far off the mark. My first thought, was, Wow, I love these bright colors. It made me smile.
