May Flowers

The Artful Delight Monthly Card Kits aren't just for cards! Please stop on over to the Artful Delight Blog to see how I made this necklace using an item from the May Kit!


Of course, the kits are designed for card makers and I just had to make a card to give with the necklace. Playing off the vintage/clean and simple vibe, I altered just a bit one of the beautiful blooms included in the kit, covered some card stock in the kit with a piece of large gingham patterned paper (also in the kit) and stamped it with a sentiment. I'll be linking this one up to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge as well as Moxie Fab World's The Gingham Challenge.
