Blog Hop through the May Flowers

Doesn't quite have the same rhythm as tiptoe through the tulips does it?  I love spring time.  This shot is of the Salt Lake City Temple and a beautiful yellow poppy.   The flowers are blooming super early this year and I just had to get a shot of this little beauty.

Thanks for joining us on our blog hop!!!

I have chosen to showcase one of my favorite flower accent sets that we have.  Petite Petals and it's coordinating punch are one of my go to stamps and punches when I need a cute little flower accent stamp sets.

I have had this style of card in my mind as soon as I saw the file table dies in the catalog.  Not used in how they were initially designed, but I think it is a clever fun way.  I pulled out all the goods---ornate tag topper punch, banner dies, ribbons, twine, buttons, file tab die to name a few.  (I love toys!)
As you can see in the second image that the file tab is used as an insert to keep the card closed. 

I cut a small slot with my x-acto knife to insert the tab.  The other little flowers are from the stamp set called Pictogram Punches - retiring. 

Well head on over to Jeanna's blog for more flowers.

I love your card! The striking front is beautiful and the notch for the card to go in is very clever!

Very clever! I love how you used the file tab. I get lazy and forget to use my coordinating Petite Petals stamp. All of your flowers are beautifully stamped and pretty!!
