Hello May Flowers - Key Ingredient Blog Hop & Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
It's time for the Key Ingredients monthly blog hop and subscriber challenge! This month's theme is "May Flowers" and the Taylored Expressions KI Design Team is sharing their bloomin' beautiful projects HERE!

Here is my card for the challenge.  I've used Distress Stains (worn lipstick, fired brick, dried marigold and mustard seed) to color my flower. The yellow (Bazzill) card stock that looks orange has been sponged with Dried Marigold and Spice Marmalade Distress Ink (Ranger) all around the edges (so has the Scallop border - TE Medium Scallop border die)
The stamp set I've used is Bugabee (a TE set), I've stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black on the yellow Bazzill card stock supplied in the Key Ingredient kit.  The ribbon (center of flower) was threaded through all three flowers and a knot tied (faux french knot!). I used a crop-a-dile to punch the hole.  I used Stickles (gunmetal) to color the black on the bee for a little glam! 

For more information about the Key Ingredient Monthly Kit be sure and check out Taylored Expressions!

Thanks for looking!  I'm heading back to the craft room to play with some more flowers!

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? Luke 12:27-28
