This is my card for today's Featured Stamper: Mercy Kerin. She has a fabulous gallery over at Check it out HERE. I chose Mercy's card HERE to case.

I changed the colours, the designer papers and the stamps and accessories. I kept the basic layout minus a few layers. I stamped my Lily of the Valley twice and cut out and popped it up on dimensionals. I also used new paper I have from Basic Grey, it is the Granola Designer Paper Pack.
I tried my hand at paper piercing then made it into faux stitching. The flowers are also coloured in with a white gel pen. I used NEW stamps for May from Clear Dollar Stamps. The Lily of the Valley stamp is the May Stamp of the Month, and the sentiment is the new Words of Gratitude stamp set. The sentiment on the inside of the card says: "Words of Gratitude Create a Lovely Circle That Always Returns At the Right Moment."
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps: May Flower of the Month, Words of Gratitude
Paper: Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Ivory, Basic Grey Granola DP
Ink: Black Staz-on, Baja Breeze, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Markers, White Gel Pen, Paper Piercer, Large & Scalloped Oval Punches, SU Corduroy Brads, SU Grey Tafetta ribbon, dimensionals, sponge daubers
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

This is such a beautiful card. I love Lily of the Valley. Its one of my favorite flowers and is bloom right now in my garden. I like to cut it and bring it in the house, it fills a room with its beautiful scent instantly. Your card is so pretty. I love how you popped up the image and the colors/papers you used.
