May Day Flowers

Hello Power Poppy Fans!  We’ve had the best time bringing you our beautiful instant garden this week!  We’ve been delighted to hear that you’ve enjoyed the offerings and that you are taking advantage of these fantastic digital stamps that are available for a limited time only!  Today we’re all hopping along giving you one more peek at what you can do with these beauties in our May Day Garden.  It’s going to be gorgeous!  

I put together a sweet and simple little card that’s full of cheer with these pretty Gerbera Daisies.  I think orange and deep pink is one of my favourite warm weather colour combinations and perfect for Gerberas.  I coloured them up with Copics (see which ones below) and then used my Circle and Lacey Circle Spellbinders to frame them up.  The papers are older MME that worked really well with the palette. 

I’ve added some baker’s twine, button, half circles, enamel dots and some pretty washi tape inside and out to finish it all off.  

Here’s the Copics I used.  

And below are the beautiful sets for May all together. I love that you have them instantly - and that you can join us on our challenges all May long!  They’re just SO perfectly spring aren’t they?  

Be sure to visit the Bloom Brigade today and our special guest see what they have up their creative sleeve today, they’ve been amazing this week haven’t they?  It’s so fun for us to create together!  Thanks so much for cheering us on.  Enjoy these wonderful sets!
