Urban Scrapbook's Monthly Challenge kit - May

Welcome to May!

The Urban Scrapbook's May Kit

This month's kit contains the beautiful chipboard pieces along with paper from Simple Stories.
Plus a little challenge as well...
The layout isn't complicated. I painted the chipboard with Prima paints which added a nice iridescent  sparkle
and for the challenge element in the kit? A shaker card!
I created a background on the card base using the Sizzix transfer sheets and a butterfly die from Memory Makers. Then I inked the card with the same colors as my background paper on the layout and assembled the card.
NOTE: make sure your plastic shaker piece is adhered really well to the paper. I had sequins everywhere! It was more like an explosion card when I shook it. sigh
anyway, happy National Scrapbooking weekend. Let's make sure we include a little creativity and play time into our Weekend. 
bye for now.

Wildflower Saloon - A Trunk Full of Hibiscus

Hi everyone,

I took the Wildflower Saloon box card and made a trunk full of hibiscus using Heartfelt Creations stamp and die sets.
I used some of the leaves from the SVG file, but mainly, I stamped and cut out the hibiscus and leaves to fill in the box card.
What do you think? I like it a lot!
I colored the flowers by sponging pink distress ink on them and then coming in with a copic marker to darken the centers. The leaves were colored with 2 shades of distress ink (Lucky Clover and Peeled Paint)
thanks for looking, see you soon!
