May Celebrations

May is the beginning of Spring blooms.  It's a time to celebrate sunshine and everything fresh... To-day, I am sharing a card I made for mother's day which should  inspire all of you to lighten-up your designs to celebrate the Spring season upon us.

JustRite Stamps has a challenge with a sewing theme which all of you will enjoy.  Check out their designer samples, sure to inspire.  I am entering my card into this fun challenge #  JRC_096. Tiny yellow button/floss.
Just Rite stamp set featured on my card is from the Botanical Butterflies clear stamp set.

The window panel on this card features Shimmerz Paints.  Shimmerz paints would like to see your artwork on their Facebook Page for the opportunity to have a Guest spot on their blog.
I used the modelling paste to create some texture to reflect a view from your window.  
Bubble wrap to create texture for the flower bush, Paint brush stippling for green grass & the upper vine.
My window panel supplies

Shimmerz paints, Hermit the Frog , Pink Stiletto, No Yoking, Sunflower and BlueByU Pearlz
