Double D Challenge - May Flowers

Yes, it is the beginning of May already and we at Double D  and Team Diane, are celebrating the May flowers.  Here is the mood board for you.

Look at all of the lovely delicate spring flowers that you can choose from.  Beautiful colors too. 
 I chose the Planning for Magnolias from Power Poppy.  Colored them up with my Spectrum Marker and used some masking to get an extra flower in the top left corner. Then I filled in the entire background with a light marker too. 
The sentiment is a die from Memory Box called Big Halo Hello ( love that title).  I has a two-part die that allows you to cut a halo.  I cut that from vellum and colored it on the back.  That way I could match all of the colors.  The word was die cut twice and then I applied versamark and Platinum embossing powder to it.  I have limited supplies right now.  I could have been cut from foil paper too.  An easier step. The front panel was added to some card stock that I colored just the edge with my marker as I didn't have the right colors.  Another cool trick. Then added some Clear droplets from Kat Scrappiness.  
I hope you are inspired to join us for this challenge.  Don't you love doing flowers?  I sure do. 

REMEMBER:  We have a fun prize to give away to one lucky player,
which will be chosen by Random.org
