Welcome to the May Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is My Girl (feminine card)! You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog.  We have something new…a “Stamp of the Month”. Each month a different image will be 50% off. This month- it’s the Aprons. Be sure to check out the great deals on the Clearance Stamps, too. And as always, we have a  have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.

Well, the added the challenge for the DT is a partial die cut…and I totally missed it. I was looking forward to it but I just had it in my head that it was for the next challenge. 🙁 I do have a partially embossed background so maybe that will suffice. 

I started by stamping the Summer Flower Pops Background with the combo of chalk inks onto white card stock then I die cut one large, one small rectangle & one oval to back the greeting. I edged the rectangle layers with blue & green permapaque markers to give them a little more definition. The greeting was put together with two stamps & two of the chalk ink colors.

The upper corners & lower edge were punched & I added a turquoise layer underneath so the punch work would show up better. Some extra flowers (from the same punch) were added here & there along w/ some crystals & silky blue bow w/ a cut glass button on top.

Here’s a look at the inside using a narrow leftover frame along with a flower corner stamp.

And don’t forget the 50% off stamp of the month…Aprons! Here’s a card I made way back when using it, in case you need a little inspiration! (If you click the picture, it will take you to the details.)
