May Day

The theme for the card of the month swap I'm in is May Day. Once again, I found myself turning to the trusty "image search" at Yahoo to complete a COTM card. I turned up a sweet line drawing of girls at a May Pole. With a little cropping to focus on the girls in front, I think it makes a pretty good image.

Colors for this card are for Victorine Originals Challenge #11 -- green/purple and white. (Green and purple is my favorite color combo, so that was easy.)

Magical Monday Challenge (Paper Cupcakes) is to incorporate fabric and stitching into the card. The bow is made of tulle and gives the card a light, frilly touch. I put stitching around the purple layer, which actually looks like a fabric print. (True, it's faux stitching, but it looks pretty realistic to me, including the fact I didn't get it straight, just like I never get real seams straight.)

Sketch is this week's SCS sketch challenge layout.
