A Bouquet for May

This is a card I made for one of my group swap partners, of course "May Flowers", What else this time of year? At the least it's wishful thinking, and at best, reflects gardens starting to bloom everywhere. The front features a little Lady Bug from Squigglefly, and the slider and back have some cute little House Mouse images. I thought the slider would make a good place to put a Gift Card, maybe Mothers Day?  The instructions for the Flower Pot can be found at SplitCoastStampers and it was a breeze to assemble. I put a little tab on the back so it would stand up and my spring bouquet was done.

The large butterfly is a Spellbinders die and the little one is my trusty MS punch. The flower was also punched out, embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and glittered on the edges with my gold glitter pen. The reason I wrote instructions on the slider was that I made a similar card a while back for my Aunt and it took her six months to figure out that the "flower" slider pulled out! Now, I know my swap partner is much too savvy to make that mistake, but I wasn't taking any chances :)
and now - since it is Strawberry season, I think I'll go swipe one of the berries in our garden before anyone else gets it. I'll just say I don't know where it went - maybe the snails ate it!!! yum, yum.


  1. Just love this card. I have looked at the template for this card several times and never tried it but with a mouse. It's fab. tfs.
