May Flowers & Father's Day Wishes



You know the saying...April showers bring May flowers...so that's what the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS is all about - using flowers! You know I won't pass up that opportunity!  This is a really simple card with embossing (there's that sweet little SU scallop border I love so much!), a border of DP from We R Memory Keeper's Simply Spring collection, and a leafy flourish topped with rolled roses.  I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which has the theme of flower power.


My second card is for Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch Challenge...just perfect for inking up some new Verve!  I've had this pair of QuicKutz embossing folders for some time and they worked well with the nautical theme.  Love the bold, masculine papers in MME's "Oxford Lane" pad from their kate & co. collection!  I'm so glad Julee included these teeny wheel images - perfect for a little "button" accent!
