Inspirational #120: May Flowers

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals! 
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #120 - May Flowers

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, May 21 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

Drea here hosting this weeks Inspirational, which is all about flowers! 
For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

This week is all about those May Flowers coming into bloom! So lets see them on some projects. Just remember you have to have at least one stamped flower. 

Here is my project for this challenge:

I started with some white cardstock, Distress Inks, and water, to make the diamond pattern in the background  using Designer Diamonds. I distressed the edges and around the inner diamond. Then I stamped the leaves and flowers using Place in my Heart stamp set, with some Palette Inks (Chartreuse, Landscape, Sunflower, Orangerie, and Bordeaux.)To make the larger diamond border going across bottom, I used a frame from Victorian Embellishments. Finally I added some ribbon, did some hand-stitching,  and used Celebrate Tags to stamp Happy Birthday. 

Paula-Kay created this beautiful card using Dotty Flowers stamp set! 

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!!

Inspiration Projects - After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational.
