May flowers challenge

We've had a lot of rain in the last few weeks, so the flowers are blooming beautifully here in the north east.  So Paper and Such's May Flowers challenge is perfect!  Not only do they have an awesome selection of stamps to choose from, but they are so much fun to color too!!!

I decided to go in a different direction this time around.  I took four of the sets and made some very pretty bookmarks.  They all have a touch of bling on them, whether it's a Sakura pen or Stickles.  This was also a great project to use up some of my scrap ribbon.  Cuz' we all know that we don't throw any of it away, right?

These two feature the Wild Rose and Poppy stamps.  

And these are the Daisy and Daffodil sets.  I'm not sure if you can tell, but I added Goldenrod Stickles to the daisies and used my Sakura pen around the daffodils.

Now, go check out all the other great ideas that the Paper and Such DT has for you!  Don't forget to enter the contest!  You get 1 entry and a bonus one if you use a Paper and Such image!!!
