The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is "April Showers Bring May Flowers", where we are to create something with showers and/or flowers.
My card was inspired by a design I found in another paper crafting supply catalog. When I saw the flower bouquet made with buttons, I had to try it out myself using the new buttons that CTMH unveiled in their Spring/Summer Idea Book.
Since there isn't a yellow assortment, I made my own! I mixed one drop of Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint with one drop of Sunny Yellow Reinker and painted it on the back of one of the flower buttons from the Clear Buttons assortment.
For the sunshine stamp image (from the Splendid Day stamp set), I stamped the image using Sunny Yellow ink and then used a sponge dauber to dab some Sunset ink around the edges of the image.
All supplies used are CTMH, and you can purchase them all here or by clicking on the "Shop with Me" link on the right.
