Fabulous...Uniko Studio Challenge #9, STAMPlorations May Challenge: Stamps and Flowers, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Spring Flowers

I'm back...with another shaker card.  The sequins were out; the Beautiful Bloom stamp and dies were out; the Fabulous stamp was vying for attention...had to pay attention.

I'm squeezing in quickly to the Uniko Studio Challenge #9, where our wonderfully creative hostess, Bev and her talenedt DT, have tempted us with a lovely palette of Spring colours:


Flowers and stamps means I'm also adding a second card to the May Challenge at STAMPlorations, which is a most welcoming, warm place to play,





Although we've had sunny skies for a couple of days, the 'greening up' of our area is taking its time, as well it should. Two years ago, we had a major snowstorm in June. Yes, you read that right:  June! Spring in Alberta is slow in coming, so until it does, I'll enjoy blooms of the paper variety...


NOTE:  Honoured and delighted to have my card selected as a Uniko Studio Challenge "showcase."  THANK YOU!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  5. fabulous Cafol and the sequins are perfect for this. I love how you have placed the flower on the edge. I have in mind a shaker card I want to make for my Mum as she loved one I showed her last week (the only one I have ever made!). Must act on the idea soon!

  7. The card says it itself: It is fabulous! You are becoming a real pro at those shaker cards! I still haven't tried one...
    I am glad you have this attitude (and the ability to make your own spring flowers) about spring in Alberta! And I really wish that you won't have any more snowstorms in May and definitely not in June!!!

  8. Yes...totally FABULOUS and loaded with 'shaker' fun! Stamping the flower inside the "package" is brilliant as is that most amazing sentiment/font! Another fantabulous card!

    Snow....yep, most of the day yesterday too. But it did melt off today. Poor spring flowers....they must be thinking that they have jumped the gun on spring!

  22. Hi Carol! My apologies in my delay in commenting on your 'FABulous' creation. This is stunning, I love how the fabulous sentiment fits perfectly along the edge of the polaroid die cut and the bloom and shaker sequins is simply perfect.
