May is a month for flowers at Make My Monday

Good morning everybody

I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.  At  Make My Monday  we are having a 'Floral' time, so every challenge during the month will be with this in mind.  So today we want to see Lily of the Valley, or any flower coloured white.

Please do pop across to the challenge, there are some beautiful examples of work for inspiration.

For my card I chose a beautiful poppy image from Hero Arts, having discarded several other stamps because they had too much detail on them and would have been very dark, and I have no white embossing powder.  I have coloured with Promarkers very lightly in Vanilla,  Ice Grey, and Ivory, and used several shades of Green on the stems.  The base card is TH Distress Card and the striped paper is from Pion.  Ribbon is from stash.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Addicted to stamps - a Mothers Day card/card for a lady
Dream Valley Challenge - For a special lady
Great Impressions - Anything Goes
Opus Gluei - Beyond the garden gate
Paper Sundaes - Mother's Day
Scrappers Delights paper crafts - May flowers
Hybrid Digi Chick - Inspired by Nature
Paper Players - Mothers  Day/Special lady
The Squirrel and the Fox - One for the Girls
By the Cute and Girly - Spring is in the air
I Brake for Challenges - Floral
Joanna Sheen - Flower Power
