Control Freaks May Blog Hop - Plant a Garden

 Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the May Tour de Freaks blog hop! 
This month, the theme is Plant a Garden. We've been enjoying
some gorgeous planting weather here, so it's perfect timing for this theme!
Whether you are just arriving from the wonderful Wendy Weixler or
just starting out here, this hop will sure to inspire your own garden-themed projects!

I combined the Hello Lady Bug and Ringed with Nature stamp sets
for these cards. It was a bit of a challenge as these are two stamp sets
are complete opposites when it comes to design - one clean and simple and
the other has a little more rustic/nature feel. But combined, they work!
I decided to give the flowers the stage for the top card and kept the ladybug
all in white. The card on the right combines a few of the flowers but 
also leaves room to add a photo, too. This would be great to send to
grandparents with their grandkids photo. A sweet little keepsake.

Stamps: Hello Lady Bug, Ringed with Nature
Ink: Early Espresso, Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Versamark
Paper: Basic White, Smoky Slate, Les Shoppes DSP
Accessories: Stylish Shapes dies, Iridescent Rhinestones, Basic s3D embossing folders, White embossign powder, heat tool

Happie Stampin'!
