Paper Sweeties May Challenge #55

Hello everyone! Today is a very exciting day - today marks the beginning of another month-long challenge where you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties shop. Be sure to stop by Paper Sweeties to get some inspiration on their wonderful blog and in their gallery, do some shopping, and then come play along with us in this month's challenge.  Here is May's wonderful inspiration photo:

The challenges over at Paper Sweeties are always ANYTHING GOES with the inspiration photo as your jump-off point. So you can use the colors, shapes, or theme to help you create your project. Here's the card I made using the "flowers" theme, and I pulled spring-like feel out of the picture too:

This card was so fun to put together! I have been wanting to use these flower stamps and dies for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity! 

The flowers, pocket and sentiment were popped up with some foam squares for added dimension. All products used are linked at the bottom of this post :)

Please be sure to check out what the rest of my Paper Sweeties team mates have created for you - sooo much amazing talent - then be sure to come play with us!
