April Showers Bring May Flowers Card Contest!

Hello everyone!!!

There's a really fun contest going on over at Creative Play Stamps!!!  It's called *April Showers Bring May Flowers*, and you just need to upload any floral or garden-themed card to the contest forum!  (No purchase necessary).  The stamps do not have to be from Creative Play Stamps.  You can enter as many cards as you like until midnite, May 8.  Then voting begins on the 9th and goes until the 22nd!  The winner will be revealed at the site on May 26th!  Good luck!

There are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes:
1st Prize: **Big Bag of Prima Flowers and a $30 Gift Certificate 
2nd Prize: $15 Gift Certificate 
3rd Prize: $10 Gift Certificate 

**The bag of flowers is about the size of a child's pillow - 13" tall, and 9" wide - and weighs 1/2 a pound! 

Here's a little inspiration to get you going!

Since the 70's and 80's has been back in style for a while,  I thought I'd pay tribute to that era by making an orange and brown 70's style card!  I made the orange and brown madras background using the *Dragged Madras* technique featured at Technique Junkies (aka PatStamps).  It's one of the featured techniques for April/May and can be found here if you're a subscriber.  Since I had been using the Cuttlebug Vintage Corners for another project, I figured I'd just keep using them on these cards.  The Lily rubber stamp is from Creative Play Stamps!

Most Supplies available at Creative Play Stamps:
Stamps: Creative Play Stamps:  *Lilies* and *Alphabet Lowercase*
misc: Cuttlebug Die 2x2 *Vintage*,  Martha Stewart punches: Rose Leaf  & Floral Lace Border, daisy punch, pearl sticker.

This one is a bit more simple.  After the shock of making the retro-70's card I needed to make something a bit more *normal*, lol! I used one of my all-time favorite stamps from Creative Play Stamps, *Three Tulips*.  I just love this stamp and don't ever get tired of using it!
