SSCB #31- it's about Flowers!!

Good Morning!! I have two posts today. This one is for the start of May's Serendipity Stamps Challenge.... it's all about flowers- stamped, die cut, paper, dried etc. See link below to get all the details about how you can play along and win some $ towards Serendipity stamps!!!

The DT also used images from Serendipity's Alphabet stamp sets... I went with the "V" which makes sense except violets are purple and heaven knows I am purple challenged :)

I used Serendipity's Small Violet to make my background/patterned paper. The image was stamped on gray and then colored with copics. For the Alphabet image, I stamped the image twice using basic gray onto XPress It cardstock and colored with copics. One image was matted with gray and popped on top of a diecut that was sponged while still in the die and placed on another nestabilitie die cut. The "V" was fussy cut out of the second image and popped on top. Added some Silver Viva Décor dots and organza ribbon/metal flower to finish it off. 

Hope you find time to join us, and...

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and add a flower. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.

Purple challenged? Could have fooled me! This is so sweet Vickie. Beautiful use of the oval frame die, great dimension, and love the violet background!

V for Vickie I'd say. Gorgeous use of the purple, not purple challenged issues here. Love the added pearls to the flowers in the BG too.
