Gail, who runs the CCC had decided to have a celebration when 3,000 people had signed up for the challenge and last month I was the 3,000 person to sign up! To celebrate Gail and Jo are running a blog hop from today until 28 June - all the details can be found on the Card Chain Challenge May Reveal post - there will be lots of prizes for people who leave comments. There will also be some games on the CCC blog during June, so keep popping back and have a look - there will be prizes for the games too! All winners will be announced at the end of June and there will be a few extra prizes as everyone loves happy mail in these difficult times.
This is the card I made to send to Linda in Michigan for the May Challenge using the Colour Option (Raspberry, Rose & Cream) and the Theme Option (Repeat). Linda is the next person on the blog hop - so why not pop over to see her card.
I die cut the flowers (using a die that I've had for ages and never used) from raspberry, rose and cream textured card and set them aside. I stamped 'hello' in the lower corner of the card and then laid one of the flowers onto the card so I could see where to emboss the two lines - one above and one below the flowers. I embossed the lines and then attached the flowers to the card. To finish I added a Wink of Stella to the flower centres.
To make this card I used:
DL white matt card blank
Creative Dies 'Flower' die
Ultimate Crafts ''L'aquarelle Designs' stamps
Brilliance Orchid ink
Snippets of raspberry, rose and cream textured card
Wink of Stella
I am entering the following challenges:
