Creative Card Crew Challenge: May Flowers

Hi friends,
Hope you Mommies (and those that nurture like Mommies) out there had a fabulous Mother's Day. My boys made a chocolate cake for me & I got some flowers from the hub. Today, May 10th,  happens to be Mother's Day for many Spanish speaking countries so Feliz Dia de las Madres again! :) and yes, I get more treats on this day too :) I accept gifts bilingually! (hee hee!)
Today also marks a new challenge at Creative Card Crew. This week, the challenge is... May flowers.
Here's my card:
It's a gift card holder that holds a tea bag & Starbucks gift card for my son's teacher.

Here's a closer peek:
Isn't this the cutest tea cup? It's called English Tea Cup from our fabulous sponsor this week: Robyn's Fetish! I printed it twice & popped up the roses. They're colored with Copics & then I sprayed them with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist for a bit of shimmer :) I added a bit of Crackle Accents to the cup to give it the look of a vintage porcelain tea cup.

You can find a video tut I created for this gift card holder (made with just one envelope)---> HERE.
Please stop by the Creative Card Crew blog to take a peek at the flowery creations by the rest of the DT & be sure to Linky your creation by next Monday to be in the running to win the fabby prize pack offered by our friends at Robyn's Fetish.

Thank so much for peeking today!
Gotta Go!
