Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop!
Slowly but surely, Spring is starting to peek its head around the corner and we are finally starting to experience some warmer temperatures.
What better way to officially welcome the start to the season than a blog hop featuring the amazing May card kit – May Flowers?
Did you know that you could subscribe to Simon Says Stamp’s monthly card kits for just $19.95 plus S&H every month!? The kits are an incredible value!
If you're thinking about picking up the May Flowers Kit you may want to act fast because the last few kits have sold out!
For my card share today, I used the yellows and neutrals in the kit to create this elegant Mother's Day card featuring the patterned papers, stamps and vellum included in the kit. In addition, I used an exclusive Simon Says Stamp die and added a few gemstones to finish the card.

I made the banner behind the wreath/greeting by using the banner stamp from the kit and my favorite My Favorite Things banner die(s). I stamped and colored 3 of the larger sized flower and cut 2 of them apart to layer them on top of the full one for a full, dimensional flower. I added some sparkle with a gold Copic Glitter Marker.
Here are the Copic Markers I used for my card:
