Lots of Flowers

Its the 15th of the month which means a new release for Clear Dollar Stamps! I'm so lucky this month I got to play with two of the new sets both flowers of the month. The first set is April's flower of the month Daisy. I chose to use the single daisy and merge two together to get the pair, then printed the flowers off twice and cut out just the flower and popped them up. The background is a butterflies embossing folder and I used stampin up chaulk to brighten the butterflies. The second flower set is May's flower of the month Lily of the valley. I chose not to use a sentiment because then it can be used for almost anything. I used butterflies on this card too the background is from Michaels and has flowers and butterflies with a MS butterfly punch. Go take a look at all of the Clear Dollar Stamps new releases. I've entered these cards into:
