April Showers Have Brought May Flowers

Just a couple more days til May.  Loving the flowers.  The trees are in bloom, the lilacs are making me heady when I step outside my door, the Rhodies are popping out in profusion, Irises are shooting up  Now if the April rains would stop so the flowers would stay nice !
I'm not sure these flowers on the card look like May flowers because my flowers tend to be in the pink and purple family but the patterned paper was so cheery, I went with that color scheme.

I used the sketch at MFT
All the stamping is done with Verve stamps - several sets.  The sentiment piece is created with various thank you stamps that I put on an acrylic block, rearranging until I was happy with the placement. I used my Fiskar's placement block - I love it.  It is the one with sponge feet. Just lined things up the way I wanted them and then stamped. It really helps get sentiments straight.
(Sorry about the small image.)

Let's see, what else?  Nothing much.  I used Sakura Clear Star in the centers of the flowers before adding the brads. Base is SU Pumpkin Pie.

Enjoy your weather, whatever it may be because it is the only weather you will get today!  LOL
