Petaloo International Projects for the Month of May

Simple Cards Using Petaloo Flowers

Here are my projects for the month of May using flowers from Petaloo, International. The theme this month for us that are on the design team was 'children' and I just couldn't get in the groove for that using the elegant Peony Blooms so I came up with some simple cards that I can give to mothers of children...just to brighten up their day (trust me, I know that sometimes we mothers need a little something special to make us smile).

Simple Cards Using Petaloo Flowers

Super easy to create...I used the white A2 sized cards from Creative Cafe and simply cut them in half and then adhered my flowers to a punched out circle that I raised a bit using 3 dimensional adhesive. I stamped a sweet phrase along the bottom and added a gem. I had the fabric leaves in my stash and thought they went perfectly so I added them to the cards at the last minute.

For my layout below I kept with the theme nicely as it's a layout of Zoey while at one of her dance recitals last year. The Glittered Daisy Flowers went perfectly with her outfit that she was wearing!

Watching You Grow

Here is a close-up of the flowers...I added some of the Jewel Centers to the centers of my blooms for a bit of added elegance!

I have the day off of work today and get to go eat lunch with Zoey at school today! She's so excited and I've been told several times that I'm to follow her and she'll show me what I need to do and where I need to go once I'm there...love her so much!

Have a beautiful Wednesday!
