May flowers

This week at House Mouse the challenge is May flowers, and it is the same at Creative Card Crew. Basic Grey want charms, Colour Create want aqua, green, purple and white with the added option of glitter, which I've very definitely opted to add, using a Sketch Saturday sketch turned upside-down.

For this inspirational card for a dear friend, I've used scraps of Bo Bunny (the purple polka dot), Basic Grey (the aqua) from the Lemonade collection pack, and the striped scrap is so old that I have no idea what it is now. I've Sticklesed it using Star Dust and a paint brush to get that delicate edge instead of the blobby look that often comes straight out of the bottle. The charm came from Bizzy Becs on-line store and the flowers, brads, photo corners and fibre from my stash. The image of course is from House Mouse, coloured with Copic markers.
