MHKDesigns May / June Challenge

Hello, friends!  Welcome to our fifth MHKDesigns Challenge. This Challenge is all about keeping it simple and having fun while creating. Each each month you will get  a photo and colour swatch prompt. YOU decide which you're inspired by to create your work of art. It can be either or both. AND you are free to make what ever paper project you fancy - a card, scrapbook layout, a tag, a box, art journal page... you choose! The options are limitless.

The Design Team will be showcasing products from MHKDesigns Etsy Shop and we would love to see you use them too. However, you are free to use any products and enter the challenge to win some fabulous goodies by MHKDesigns. If you use stamps or papers by MHKDesigns you may ignore the Challenge prompt altogether; i.e. it's ANYTHING GOES for you!

Let's take a look at the Challenge prompt:

My project for this challenge features several elements from previously released sets. It showcases a lovely flower from Tulip of Thanks. I'm keeping the design fairly simple but adding interest with dimension. The sentiment is from Rainbow of Ribbons. The tiny polkadot paper is from Sunflower Sampler and this paper bundle is one of the prizes this month. The background papers is from a brand new pack called Glorious Garden which was released a couple of days ago.  

Here's a closer look at the dimension on this card. So I went a bit overboard with the foam tape, but it adds a ton of interest to an otherwise simple card. I also curled the corners of the background paper.

The winner of this Challenge stands to win some fabulous products by MHKDesigns. So make sure you follow the challenge rules and you'll be eligible for the prize. And if you need a little creative boost, you'll find more inspiration by the rest of the Design Team over at the Challenge Blog. You have until June 15th to link up your project.

Thank you for stopping by today and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for us this month.
