May Peeps Challenge. April Flowers Bring May Flowers

Happy May! I hope your weekend was a good one. The weather has been cold and rainy here. It feels more like the beginning of April. Thankfully it is suppose to warm up starting tomorrow though. This month it is my turn to host the challenge on the Peeps Blog. I decided to make it an easy one, all you have to do is make something with flowers in honor of the saying April Showers Bring May Flowers. This is what I came up with.

I have been wanting to make a flower pot card for awhile now and decided this was the perfect chance. I started with this Flower Pot SVG cutting file. I cut the pot using Raspberry Fizz Cardstock. Then I stamped the polka dots with Versamark Ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. The flowers were made with this SVG file. After I cut them out with my Cricut I ran them through my paper crimper to give them some texture. When I was done with that I added buttons to the middles made with the PTI button dies and stamped with the Bitty Background Gingham pattern. I also added some paper lace trim and tied some Hawaiian Shores Satin Ribbon around the top of the pot. Finally I finished it off with a tiny tag stamped with the word mom. As you can see the flowers come out and there is plenty of room to write a personal message. There is also room in the pocket to add a gift card as well. I hope you will get a chance to play along with us. You don't have to make your own flowers like I did you can use flower stamps or floral patterned paper too. You can link your project on the Peeps Blog.
That's it for now. I will be back Saturday with a new SFYTT and next Monday with my guest designer project for the Shabby Tea Room too. Until then I hope you have a great week and as always thanks for stopping by.

SO PRETTY, Terri! I really like the colors and love the textured flowers. They look so much like Spring! It is warmer here today and there is a bit of sun. It has been cooler and we even had to bring some flowers in over the weekend. I think we are all ready for May flowers!
