Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge


The theme of the challenge this month is Flowers:
May is the month when many flowers finally go into full bloom after a long winter's sleep.  For the blog hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers.  You can stamp backgrounds, create custom floral embellishments, showcase unique flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads, etc...), flowers die-cut from different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc...) or anything else you can dream up! We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!
I decided to use the flower from the Friendship Jar Fillers stamp set.  This flower played a large part in my decision to buy this stamp set along with the Friendship Jar stamp set, and subsequently the Friendship Jar filler stamp sets that came later.  I already had one that was colored with copics, so being practical (or should I say lazy), I used it to create this card:


I think the papers from the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker paper pad work well with the flowers in the jar.  And the tiny tag tied around the jar with rustic jute was the perfect finishing touch.  I love these tiny tags.

Thanks for looking!  Now check out the rest of the Blog Hop participants on the list over at Nichole's blog.  Have a great Blog Hop day!
