OLS16- Blossom Details

It's time to highlight some of the details that caught the eyes of our design team members during May. Thanks to you our readers we had over fifty delightful entries to peruse and enjoy.

Make sure you come back on June 1st for a wonderful new one layer challenge.

Heather's Details

Carina used a large stamp to cover most of the card front; by keeping the colour scheme limited she created a simple and elegant card.

Cornelia's shiny red highlights are gorgeous in the delicate lines of the monochrome lanterns.

I had to feature this clever card because Leslee shows that one layer does not have to mean flat. Not only does the fold catch the eye, so does the lovely pop of yellow amidst the black and white.

Susan's Details

Check out Janet's soft stamping that looks like watercolor, and those perfectly placed pearls!

Joan Bardee

Joan combined a loose, random layout with sketchy stylized flowers and leaves, and three words in a handwritten font of different sizes...a whimsical and very unified design!

Ren used white embossing on white card stock for lovely effect on her card!

Ardyth's Details

Sue's colourful blossoms feel joyful - the white space keeps the card feeling beautifully clean

This CAS card gives us the feeling of looking through the windows to a colourful spring day!

Gerrina's use of silhouettes and sponged panels is warm and sunny!

Karen's Details

 Cornelia's card took my breath away.  So simple but so elegant and done in a monochromatic style.

EunjoA's card was so pretty with the cascading roses.  I like the white detail she added to the centers.

Shery's card caught my eye with it's bright blooms and I love the way the sponging fades away at the top.
