The Colors of Crab Apple Blossoms

Supplies: patterned paper (Authentique), die cuts (October Afternoon), chipboard (Studio G), tulle ribbon (Wyla), rub ons (Hambly), flowers and rhinestones (Petaloo), label sticker (October Afternoon), mini alphabet stickers (Lily Bee Design), misc. (household stapler).



Happy May Day!  I've always loved this holiday, even though it's not widely celebrated in the United States.  My family is friends with one other family that celebrates May Day, and this is the card that I made for them.  The pink color scheme is not typical for me, but I was inspired by all the crab apple trees that recently bloomed.  

The inside of the card is pink.  Very, very pink.

A playful polka dotted pattern adorns the back of the card.

Hope my post brought you a little spring cheer!  I'll leave you with a few detail shots.  Thanks for your visit!
