PBSC May - Anything Goes...Optional 'Use Your Favourite PB Stamp...More Inspiration!

Happy Saturday everyone! 

We're back with some more inspiration for our current challenge, and the announcement of the DT favourites from last month's challenge!

Here are the DTs favourite projects from April's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Spring Flowers') challenge:

Helen's favourite: #24 - Janette
Helen says: I have this stamp too...and loved Janette's colouring technique with it on this gorgeous card, that I had to try it myself!

Jacky's favourite: #8 - Maura
Jacky says: Love the dragonfly die cut against the alcohol ink background which reminds me of stained glass - a very striking card!

Jenny's favourite: #27 - Karen Dunbrook
Jenny says: The depth and variation of colour is beautiful and I love the image on side with white space on right.

Lynda's favourite: #49 - Gail Taillefer
Lynda says: I love the artsy, painterly look of this card, and the soft, luscious colors, as well as the distressing of the background.

Sue's favourite: #34 - Michelle
Sue says: What a super fun card with such great dimension!

Sylvie's favourite: #21 - Jules
Sylvie says: I really like the layout, the papers...and that cute stamp!
