Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge: April Showers/May Flowers

I went for the May flowers on my card for this week's challenge over on the Totally Stampalicious blog. I used one of the new images from Jodie Mackrell and Bugaboo Stamps. These cute images were previously only available as digital images, but TS and Bugaboo have teamed up to make eight of these super cute images available in polymer acrylic! This one is called Desiree....isn't she cute?
My card base is Rich Razzleberry and the layers are Melon Mambo!!! I'm so glad SU!! has decided to keep these colors in their line up!! The dsp is Green at Heart by Basic Gray...lots more flowers there! I used Copic markers to color my image and added a bit of lacey trim and a small bow to separate the layers of dsp.
I saw a tutorial Friday morning to make dimensional flowers with card stock, a scallop punch, and a paper crimper. Super easy and I used just a small circle punch to make the flower I added to this card! I made like a hundred of these flowers this weekend only much bigger! Just didn't look right on this card, so I tried a small circle instead. I needed a smaller brad, but with everything all packed up from a two-day crop, I just couldn't put my hands on them.
Here's a shot of the inside....I actually finished the inside while making the card. It's something I rarely do because I like to save that part of the job until I know what I will use the card for.
You can join in on the challenge this week. Just make a card that features either April showers or May flowers, and then add it to the Totally Stampalicious blog using the Mr. Linky tool on the challenge post. They alwasys offer a great prize each week. Thanks for stopping in today!! Have a wonderful week!!
