May STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Mid-Month Inspiration

How the time flies when it's spring. Already half way through my most favourite month of the year. But the good news is there is still almost half of the month left to enjoy. We have had a few days of long overdue rain here, I'm hoping it will encourage the fruit trees to do well. There are so many apricots and cherries on the trees this year. Last year was a bit of a dud for both so it would be great to see all that lovely fruit ripen.

Anyhow, I'm not here to ramble on about fruit but to remind you that there is still plenty of time to link up your CAS cards in feminine colours to join the beautiful and inspirational creations which are already linked up to this month's challenge. You can find a whole post full of inspiration from the DT! You don't have to use STAMPlorations products, but if you have them we would love to see you use them. And don't forget, if you want to go for a bit of a shopping spree in the STAMPlorations store you can use the code STAMPGIRLKAROLA for 20% off!

For my card, I used the wonderful combination of flowers, coffee and doughnuts. I stamped the image from Bloomin' Spring Coffee Basket, coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it. I created a background for the card using the Fall Floral Trio stencil and orange, pink and purple Distress Inks. Last, I added one of the sentiments from the stamp set. I thought this would make a great card to cheer someone up if they were having a bit of a bad day.
