May Day Basket Card


I came across this idea when I know a little bit about May Day.

May Day (May 1st) is celebrated in many places around the world. The traditions and stories surrounding May Day vary from place to place. There is, however, one thing that is similar in most celebrations - the use of Flowers!
One of the most popularly known May Day traditions is to hang a basket full of spring flowers and/or other small gifts on a neighbor's doorknob. The trick is you don't want the neighbor to see you! If you get caught, you are supposed to get a kiss.

I made this May Day basket card, hope that you like it. It was very simple, as make a rectangle card, made it a cone shape then decorate as you wish !:-)

Inside the card, you can write some note here;-)

Supplies Used: Tilda stamp(Magnolia),Basic Grey Stella Ruby Patterned Paper,Distress ink, prima paper flowers, Versafine Ink(Onyx Black),ribbon.

OK, don't forget to enter my blog candy challenge, if you like. Please send your card before 4th May. Thank you :-))
