Helloooo! I apologize for my absence, May has been a crazy month and I am trying to find my mojo again. School ended this week, and now my kiddos are home for the summer, this is good for me, now the schedule can soften up a bit! Ahhhhh. (I hope!)
There is a new challenge starting today over on the A Muse Studio Consultant Challenge Blog, it's all about "Sentiments".

Welcome to another A Muse Consultant blog hop, this month's theme is "May Flowers". You should be arriving from Tammy Smith's blog. If you are just joining the hop, you might like to start from the beginning by going HERE. For my card I used a set of our wonderful new dies, Flower #2, I cut the flowers from Apricot card stock and set them aside to use on another project. I stamped my Kraft card stock base with my new favorite background stamp, Extraordinary, it's like having print from a book in any color you choose!! After stamping the leaves from Wild Rose, I layered the Apricot card stock with the negative cut outs of the flowers over the top of my stamped card base with foam tape, so it pops up a bit. For the flower centers I used Pumpkin Buttons tied with Twine. A Vintage Label with a sentiment from Avian Notes finishes it off.
I hope you will check out the other participants creations, there is some blog candy if you start from the beginning Samantha Kania
