Clearly Inspired Challenge #13

It's been one heck of a week over here, and I sure am glad it's Friday. Now I just need to get through the weekend. . .there is so much on the plate my head hurts just thinking about it. That must mean I need more coffee, hehe. Pray for me. . .I'll be delivering part of the message on Sunday. Yikes!

Ok, onto business. It's Clearly Inspired Challenge time over at ClearlyiStamp. This week's challenge is stemmed from the phrase 'April Showers bring May flowers'. Now that we are in May, let's focus on those flowers! I used this oldie, but goody called Bold Bouquet, and another called Kid Encouragements. I am loving both of these sets! I think I was actually successful with the rock and roll technique too! I paired it up with this yummy Cosmo Cricket paper called Garden Variety. I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday, and the colors from Paper Sundaes, which were red, yellow, and green.
CDS Stamps: Bold Bouquet, Kid Encouragements
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Sweet Pea (CDS), buttercream, Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety
Accessories: red brads (CDS), Tiny Bubbles & D'Vine Swirls embossing folders, window punch, dimensionals, buttons

Remember that you don't have to have Clear Dollar Stamps to participate in the challenge, but we would love to see them if you've got them. Stop on by the store and check out all the wonderful stamp sets, papers, ribbon, and embellies that CDS carries!
