Lily of the Valley for Four Seasons May Challenge

Happy first day of May and thank you so much for stopping by! A new month means a new challenge starts at the Four Seasons challenge blog. I've also posted the May Crafty Wednesday challenge right below this post or you can click here if you're visiting for that challenge.

It's time for another beautiful spring moodboard at the Four Seasons challenge but its use is optional as Anything Spring Goes

Here is what I made inspired by the pretty pink Lily of the Valley looking image and I chose this opportunity to ink up the new to me stamp from Aall and Create.

I started out by smooshing green Distress Oxide inks onto the background (Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness) then stamped the Lily of the Valley from the Aall and Create set Elegant Spring Florals #623 for the focal point. For a little more background interest I used more stamps from Aall and Create (Foliage #496, Blackbird #530 and Elegant Spring Florals #623). The Lily of the Valley text is part of the Elegant Spring Florals set and sentiment "Especially for You" is from the Penny Black Set Blooming Sentiments.

I added sticky enamel dots, matted onto black cardstock and then onto a white card base to complete the card.

Bei uns im Wald gibt es sehr viele Maiglöckchen und es ist eine wahre Freude, jetzt durch den Wald zu gehen, denn sie verströmen ihren wunderbaren Duft, den ich so liebe. Und ich werde mir auch wieder einige ins Haus holen.
Der Hintergrund Deiner Karte ist toll gestaltet und alles andere in schwarz zu stempeln passt perfekt!!
