Flowers For May

Daring Cardmaker's first dare of each month is given over to celebrate the flowers of the current month - May being traditionally associated with Lily of the Valley and Hawthorn.

I went with Lily of the Valley;

and used;
Graphics Fairy Lily of the Valley
Downloaded postcard
Ribbon Girl seam binding, wool felt and button
Embroidery thread
Melissa Frances rub on
Ikea flowers (coloured with Promarkers)
Hand stitching and inking.

We have a fabulous guest designer this month - Kissina and you can see her card and all beautiful cards made by the design team here.

Love your card - the downloadables are perfect, and I wouldn't have guessed that flower was from IKEA! Great idea ;)
Thanks for the inspiration, hugs, Ruth S

Fabulous card, I love the colours you've chosen to go with the image, and the ribbon & button. I think the rub on text gives it a nice modern feel.
