DDD May Flowers

The May DDD- post on the 15th- I am late!  We are focusing on May flowers this month- and I just love floral images : )

 I love floral images, so had to make another with the images Debbie provided in the kit : ) Below, I had to try the technique Jennifer McGuire posted about making shaker cards using tulle.

 The Dueling Darlings is a group on Splitcoaststampers. We are divided up into the Divas and the ***Dazzlers***. Each group receives a kit, and we all create with a like theme.  Then, we hop to each others blogs to see what everyone has created. The hostess for the Dazzlers is Debbie and for the Divas Judy.

Deb sent us:
Images- Stampin Up Blooming Beautiful
DP-My Minds Eye- Kate and Co. Cambridge COurt Mini flowers & Bouquet Paper
Ribbons- SU
Rhinestones -SU
Vintage floral adornment -SU
Blue adhesive gems- Colorbox
Images colored with Copic markers
