May Flowers - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

The Artisan team are pouring our hearts out to you this week with a bunch of flower creations! Oh yes, it's a May Flowers theme! For those in the Northern Hemisphere that might mean pretty bright Spring colours and melting snow. Over here we're just cooling off so I've dipped into a warmer cosy palette with this birthday card I made for a beautiful friend of mine. With the Grateful Bunch stamp set and co-ordinating Blossom Bunch Punch, this little flower garland was a breeze.

Enjoy - and don't forget - we love to hear from you in the comments as you hop through!

Hello and welcome to another Artisan Blog Hop! So glad you joined us. Don't forget you can save ideas for later by checking out our projects on Pinterest *HERE*

This week, I needed a card that was a little bit special so I paired the Sparkle and Shine stamp set with the Botanical Builder Framelits for something fresh and bright. It's 5x5" if you're wondering ;)
Hope you like!
