May Arts is Hopping with Stampendous and Core'Dinations!

All this week May Arts is hopping along with Stampendous and Core'Dinations!  Isn't that a fun matchup?
I love how big the Stampendous stamps are! So layered with some of the great Core'dinations papers and my favorite May Arts ribbon - this is what I came up with.


I stamped the hollyhocks and fussy cut the image.  I just used some chalk ink  and a sponge dauber to add the color to my image.  I used the new satin and lace ribbon across the card, and also edging down the side (although that strip doesn't show up so well on this picture).  I distressed the Core'dinations and die cut the Glitter Silk cardstock.

May Arts Ribbons Used
