Daring Cardmakers - The Flowers For May

Here's my go at this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge. The challenge this weeks is to make a card inspired by the flowers of the month of May the Hawthorn and the Lily of the Valley.
I know both flowers are white so I had in mind a white based card right away. I made some Hawthorn inspired blossoms just using white card and some buttons. I cut the petals out of card then folded them around my fingers to give them some shape. Then for the centers I threaded some embroidery floss through the button holes and coloured the ends with a sharpie.


 Check out the cool cards & have a go over on the daring cardmakers blog, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/2011/05/flowers-for-may.html
