FOSFTV Challenge #18 & Made Especially 4 You

I have two post today...please scroll down for Made Especially 4 you

Prize for the winner of this weeks challenge~~~
Friends of Speedy TV is looking for a May Day...May  themed card...
For those of you who are old enough you will remember the school
 days when you used to make a May basket filled with flowers and
 hang it on a special someones door knock and run. I loved
 making the little cone shaped baskets and finding pretty 
flowers to fill them. Today I have  made a little basket for
 my card. I cut out a triangle and embossed with the
 SU basket weave folder then added some
 lace trim and pearls. 

Using the Black Eyed Susan Mini stamp set I stamped each image twice, colored
 and cut them all out.My card is made from  My Minds Eye along with the 
Gina K and SU solids. Using a Spellbinder die I cut out the square lavender 
doily and added some faux stitching and pearls.The ribbon was dyed to match
 and the a little embossed butterfly added

 Entering Challenges:
Creative Inspirations: Flowers
Fashionable Stamping: Embossing
Paper Sundaes: Ribbon and Pearls
The Crafty Pad: April showers bring May flowers

Made Especially 4 You

I am honored to be a guest at Made Especially 4 You this week.
They have a lovely summery color challenge for you this week
Isn't that a yummy combo??

After stitching by    and    papers together I punched the MS
Daisy edge and embossed with the dotted swiss folder. I ran
a strip of the dyed ribbon around the center.

The sentiment is and old SU which I thought was perfect for my
card. I cut the sentiment out with the Spellbinder label #
After cutting and rolling my flowers I added a little stickles to them.
Added some leaves and more of the dyed ribbon for a bow.
Lastly I added a touch of the brown with the Cherry Lynn
butterfly. A little stickles on the body for some extra shimmer.
 Be sure to stop by and see the talented team's cards.
