Garden Cards with Video Tutorial for Scraps of Elegance Kits with May Prima Product Pick

Hi everyone!! I'm enjoying lovely spring weather here in Ohio and had a wonderful time celebrating Mother's Day with my mom on Sunday. Yes, she adores the floral pomander I gave her!!

Today I'm sharing a duo of cards created with the scrumptious April Scraps of Darkness Kit and have a video tutorial to show the techniques used in my process. I hope you enjoy it and thanks so much for subscribing to my channel HERE.

This kit has been simply fabulous to work with. Melinda has perfectly paired gorgeous papers, embellishments, and mixed media products that make creating so much fun!!

With all the gorgeous Prima products in this kit, I've also pulled inspiration from the May Prima Product Pick Challenge found HERE
