A White Flower
I hope everyone enjoyed my choices for the Man and Boy theme during April at Make My Monday. For May, the theme of the month will be FLORAL, chosen by our team member Suzi B. For this week, the birth flower for May has been chosen, the Lily of the Valley, but if you don't manage this, then an alternative is any white flower. For my card I decided upon Morning Glory which sounds better than it's common name, which I know as Bindweed. I stamped onto a piece of white vellum, dried the ink. On the reverse the areas I wanted white, I embossed with an embossing tool, which stretches the vellum to show white on the reverse side. I coloured the other areas with 3 shades of green Promarkers. The vellum was attached to a piece of white card and green card with a couple of brads. Matted onto a white 5" x 7" card, with a piece of pretty green ribbon. I didn't add a sentiment for this is a general card which can be used for many occasions which will be added to the insert when I need it. Have fun, please pop over and join in the challenge, I am sure you will enjoy our Floral month.
