Paperwings Angel Art Blog Hop: April Showers Bring May Flowers

April showers bring May flowers, right? That's the theme of our Paperwings Angel Art Blog Hop for April and it was so fun to play with flowers while putting these cards together. There are so many great ways to add flowers to cards - punches, dies, images, background paper, paper flowers, ribbon flowers, etc. Here are a few...

Dies: The flowers are from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and the image is from the TAC hostess set - Hello Day. Isn't that a fun image? I love it! And, a little bling finishes it off - can't have too much bling, right? *grin*
Punches and paper- two different flower sizes are punched and layered with a sentiment stamped on top. Add that to a card with a woven floral pattern paper, some beads on a corsage pin and a big ole ribbon and you have a memorable "hello" moment for someone.
Paper and embellishments: How about a sweet little dress covered with floral designer paper and a little pearl embellishment? Sweet and cheery for a variety of occasions. note: You can get the pattern on the Papercrafts magazine website. So fun!
Stamped image: This cute image is part of the Fibi and Lili set. It's colored with Copics and is cut out and layered on a textured white base.
I hope you'll continue hopping down the blog bunny trail on this beautiful Easter Sunday.

These are fabulous! The little girl & cat with sunglasses - what a hoot! Love the punched flowers. And the dress card - just adorable with the beaded waistband! And the last one, love the lacy edge!

These are all great cards, and such a variety! The dress-shaped card is so sweet, but I love the clean simplicity of the Fibi & Lili card! Awesome coloring too!!
