May Flowers

Happy Monday, everyone! And what a Marvelous Monday it is! That means its time for a new featured image at Shelly's Images!

We have this gorgeous pansies image for our featured image, today. It reminds me so much of the wonderful warm (yet rainy) weather we've been having. This is one of my favorite images from Shelly's Images! and I had so much fun creating with it, as did the entire DT!

Our guest designer this week, at Shelly's Images is the wonderfully talented Linda Bowman, from Card Challenges and More!

Check out the fabulous eye candy from Linda and my DT sisters, then have a look in Shelly's Store at all the fabulous images available! This beautiful pansies image is available, today only, for a discounted price!

My card uses the sketch at Stamping Vacation. The image is colored with promarkers and then cut out with circle die, then matted with a scalloped circle. Both papers are from my stash. I love the colors on this card! Reminds me of spring and summer both! The scalloped circle and flower centers are embellished with adhesive pearls. The sheer green ribbon is from my stash. The flower and the tiny bee are buttons that I cut the shanks off of, so they would lay flat on the card. The flowers are from several different companies and are from my stash. I bought the buttons new, specifically to go for this card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
