Thought of you Flower-Tree Stair-Step Card with First MayzyArt Challenge...

Hello guys...Oh, I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it!  (Singing this song in my head!...LOL).  Why am I thrilled?  It's because MayzyArt is holding its first ever challenge today and I happen to be one of the six DT's to showcase Mayzy's wonderful artworks.  Now, this is my first ever DT experience so, could you please help us have a successful launch?  (Pretty, please!)  All you have to do is go to MayzyArt's blog and submit the link to your wonderful creations through Mr. Linky.  Our theme is "May Flowers."...You can join us even if you don't use a Mayzy image and if chosen as winner, you can win 3 MayzyArt digi stamps.  Now, if you use a Mayzy image and your project is chosen by Mayzy (herself), you can win 5 whopping Mayzy digi images...(My, oh my, this is awesome, I wish I can join...LOL).  The challenge will run for a couple of weeks so, you have all the time to visit Mayzy's shop and get those "must have" digis.  Did I tell you that she sells them at a very reasonable price and right now, she is offering a 20% off with your purchase?   Now, this is for a limited time, so you better hop on her blog and get the code...Oh, and she also includes one exclusive image (different every month) with your purchase which will not be sold in her store .Can't wait to see what you can come up with.

Okay, here's my featured card for the MayzyArt "May Flower" challenge.  I did quite a few Stair-step cards before but it's been a while so, decided on making one with this wonderful Mayzy image (Xandra and Vespa).  The card is almost a 6" square.  I colored the image with my Promarker/Prismacolor Markers.  I added a nice tree using Serenade Cricut Cartridge and the sentiment from Wildcard Cartridge.  At the very back is a fence die-cut with an MS Punch.  I also incorporated some red gems and a bit of glitters (Stickles, diamond) for added dimension.  I stamped the flowers (from Paper Studio) on different colored CS and hand-cut them.  All the CS used are from Paper Studio and American Crafts.  Finally, I have my trusted sewing machine to stitch all over, inside and out...So, what do you all think?  I love, love, love Mayzy's images.  It's a dream to color!  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

THOUGHT OF YOU FLOWER-TREE STAIR-STEP CARD WITH ENVELOPE-BOX:

By the way, at the very back of this card is a special space where a personal message can be included.  I think it's important to be able to add a personal touch to any card you intend to give to someone you love.  Anyway, I hope you get even an itty-bitty inspiration from my project.  Today is a nice day and who to thank for such a wonderful morning?...None other than my Father God!  Giving back all the glory to Jesus...my hope and inspiration, of course, before my family!  God bless y'all!
