Card Chain Challenge - May reveal.

 It's time to share the card I made for the May Card Chain Challenge

My card went to Patricia in Texas

The options for this month 

Theme options: Hats/Flowers/Friendship
Technique options: Embossing Powder/torn edges.

I chose to use the sketch, Flowers and Friendship

My background was made with white card and Altenew Hot Foil plate - Exquisite Marble and WRMK Rose Gold Foil.  I also used Altenew Charming Foliage Die Set  - cut from Paint chips. And used some of the Altenew Branches and Berries set.  The sentiment was made up of Altenew Sentiment Strips 3 and a Winnie & Walter Hello die.   To ground the flowers I used a dotted vellum cut with a Spellbinders Oval die. 

And I received this beautiful summer scene from my blog mate Arlene.  ( and some die cuts too)

Always delightful to get a card from a friend! 

Got some time this afternoon to play with Grace in the craft room.  She is spending the night here while Mummy and Daddy go out to celebrate their 2nd wedding anniversary.  The new baby arrives sometime in the next couple of weeks, so last time in a while that they will have time to go out together. 

Thanks for popping in.

Two beautiful cards Dawn - love the marble like texture in your background, and your gorgeous flowers. The seaside themed one you received is a very clever piece of art with all the die cuts
