May Christmas Cards

I actually got my May Christmas cards done for Tracy's challenge a whole day early! When Tracy posted this month's challenge - use pink - I immediately thought of poinsettias. I dug around in my boxes of Christmas stamps till I found the perfect set. It's called Painted Poinsettias from Stampin' Up. I stamped the flower and leaf outlines on the card front in Versamark. I got lots of practice with my Stamp-a-ma-Jig stamping the two flowers and the leaf on the image panel. I experimented with watercolor crayons first and wasn't happy with the result and switched to markers and am happy with how they turned out. I stamped first on a Regal Rose pad and then marked the edges with a Rose Red marker for the flowers and Old Olive and Always Artichoke for the leaves. The card base is Rose Red and the Whisper White image panel is mounted on Always Artichoke and Regal Rose.

Whew! Glad to have that done, now if I could only get my cards done for Libby's Courtney's Closet challenge! Also, be sure to check out my post HERE for the scoop on our current Lime Light Designers task.
