Those May Flowers

We've been having beautiful weather this week.  All my perennials are growing and it won't be long before they are blooming.  Today finds us at a wedding of 2 of our former students marrying one another, so it will be a joyful spring day with weddings and flowers.  The Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team has another challenge to invite you into this week too.  We want to see how your April Showers have turned into Flowered May creations! 

I took this beauty - Mom from Our Daily Bread Designs and stamped it twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored with copic markers (YG91, 93, 95, 99;  R00 R01, R11, R12, R14;  and R29, R39 and R89).  Then cut out and extra Wild Rose Blossom to pop it up. 

I trimmed it in an Out of the Box fashion with Labels 10 Nestabilities, and then added Ultrafine Flower Soft in Sage

I repeated the flower design by overstamping it around the sentiment in Ruby Red, and paired it with some great designer paper Jocelyn by SEI

So please join us by showing us your flowers this week at ODBD.  The challenge is ODBDSLC13 for linking at Splitcoaststampers and be sure to add your link to the ODBD Blog.  Each week there are prizes!
