April Diva Dare - Day 9

Hi Everyone,

I am hostess today over at the Verve Stamps blog where this month's Diva Dare, the challenge is to create something with the theme "April Showers Bring May Flowers". This challenge is such a lovely one because it is so much fun to play with and combine all the lovely flower images the amazing and lovely Julee has designed and created! I choose to use the lovely stamp set Bloom and Grow which is full of flowers of all sizes and types and paired it with the lovely Mother's Day sentiment, which is from the Love Deepens Stamp set.

Here is a little Mother's Day Gift set with a card  using the Mojo Monday 189 sketch.  and a container that I intend to fill with some yummy chocolates :)

I stamped the flower from the  Bloom and Grow stamp set in to different colors and cut each one out to layer together with a decorative brad.  After creating the flowers, I stamped the leaf image inis stamp set and cut it out suing the with the ELegant Leaf die stamp set. 

Card Ingredients:

StampsBloom and Grow and Love Deepens Stamp set. from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo black and Rose Red 
Papers: Bo Bunny
Accessories: EK success scallops, bling from Want 2scrao, ribbon from stash, Ribbon Trio 3 and Wonky rectangles from Spellbinders, Elegant Leaf die from Verve Stamps, dimensionals and liquid pearls. 

I created a coordinating container that can be filled with chocolates and other treats and then later used to store other memorabilia. 

I loved creating this gift set using these gorgeous flowers and sentiments. Please check out the Verve stamps blog to see all the other projects that the Divas have been creating and who you can get in on the challenge and WIN! some yummy Verve satmps of your own!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
