STAMPlorations may challenge "stamps and flowers"

It's time for the May challenge at STAMPlorations.  What do April showers bring?  Well May flowers of course.

Get out those stamps and make something with stamps and flowers.  Remember, you don't have to use STAMPlorations stamps to be a winner.  Here's what I did.

A bit of a stretch, but I went for a totally graphic flower, stamped with one of the MOM stamps from MOM Subway Builders #2 and nearly all the Distress Inks I own!  I love how upside down "MOM" reads "WOW".  Fun, eh?

I stamped a circle with an arrow stamp from VIGNETTE: Chevron and Arrows for the center of my bloom and the leaves with a sentiment from the same set.

This card won't fit in a normal envelope, but hey, Mom is worth the extra postage, right?

Head over to STAMPlorations and join us - check out what Sue our guest designer and my teamies have to share; you have until May 31.  The winner of the monthly challenge gets two stamp sets and a guest designer gig. And this is the prize up for grabs if you join our monthly and bi-weekly challenges...

Have a great day.
