Paper Sweeties May 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Happy May 1rst!!!
Are you going to dance around a maypole today???
I remember we used to do that when I was little!

It is time for a new 

Here is our sweet inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the pretty pinks and roses!

I created my card by first making the background. I stamped the wreaths from last month's release- Hello Spring and the roses from the older Paper Sweeties Release - Pretty Posies, with Versamark ink onto some Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I sprinkled the inked images with white embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. Next I watercolored the images and background with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress inks and water. I wrapped a piece of green twine around the panel and tied a bow. Next I die cut a posie with the matching Pretty Posies Sweet Cut with some  pink card stock. I stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I did the same thing with the leaves. The sentiment is from one of my FAVORITE Paper Sweeties stamp sets called Hello Friend!

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month! We sure do enjoy seeing your fabulous creations! Remember... a random winner to the Paper Sweeties Shoppe is given away each month!
