Purple Rain

Hi everyone, Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Midweek Magnolias, this time we want to see your cards with May flowers. Easy peasy this one, I hardly ever make a card without any flowers on. I made this card on Sunday, my craft room is in the attic and all I could hear was the rain hitting the roof, that and the card being purple I couldn't get the song 'Purple Rain' out of my head, lol.

How does the saying go? April showers bring forth May flowers, we're sure going to have a glorious May judging by the amount of rain we've had in the UK. I live on the North East coast and compared to the south we've got off quite lightly, I think they might have been a bit premature with the hosepipe ban, lol.

On with my card,

I've coloured Tilda with Magnolia branch with Distress Inks, and cut the image out using a label 22 Nestie. I've used the same nestie as a template to cut the mat out, I think if you use the next size up then the mat is too big. The papers are from K&Co and I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain.

The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front. The lace is from the Ribbon Girl and all of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The corners are a discontinued quickutz corner die, and the pearls are also from WOC.

Pop over to Midweek Magnolias and have a look at the stunning creations the other girls have come up with.
