May flowers ATC

Well it has been a very busy weekend! After working Friday and Saturday morning I spent the afternoons down on the allotment - preparing the potato bed and planting the onions and first set of potatoes. Then we went to visit his parents and grandparents in Norfolk and had a couple of busy days visiting and being out and about. However I have had time to make the next trio of ATCs.

The theme for this selection is may flowers.

The first ATC was made from hot pink card with a square of orange floral paper placed in the centre top. Then three pink foam floral designs were added onto the square of orange paper. Glitter glue was used to frame the square and highlight the flowers and then a 'With Love' sentiment was added to the bottom.
This is to be entered into the following challenges:

Glitter n Sparkle - #81 Easter/Spring
Sketchy colours - orange and pink
Aud sentiments - For a friend
Polkadoodles - springtime
Simplecreatetoo - #59 no stamps
abc challenge - J-Just as you like

The second ATC was also on hot pink cardstock. A floral papermania embossing folder was used on the top half of the card and then this section was sanded down to create a distressed effect. A pale pink polkadot ribbon was added across the join section. A bird double sided peel-off was stuck onto polka dot patterned paper and pink glitter sprinkled onto the image. This was then cut into a rough oval and placed on the centre right of the card. A pink foam flower pot was added to the bottom left.

Craftyribbons - anything goes with ribbon

MIM - Distress it!

The third and final ATC used a white cardstock to which a brown and aqua patterned paper was attached across the centre. A fairy peel-off was stuck to white paper and cut into a rough oval before being stuck to the base card on the left. This was then coloured with glitter glue. A 'with love' sentiment was added to an offcut of the patterned paper, which had an inverted V cut into the end and this was then attached to the other side of the card. A yellow foam flower pot was added underneath this sentiment.
