Flowers And Champagne

Welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Flower Power' I used a really pretty Tulip stamp, this is not my usual kind of card as it has no cuteness to it.  I also didn't use backing papers as I didn't want to detract from the stamp, so embossed my backgrounds instead.

Our May prize this month is a fabulous £35 store voucher from Crafty Individuals.

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Dies & Punches' So you can use any image for this challenge.  I chose this stamp so that the card could be used as a male or female card, I always like playing with my dies so this theme is a good one for me.

We have prizes from Penny Black, All Occasion Dies, Crafts U Love, Stix 2 Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your dies out isn't it!!!!!!
