Dancing Around The May Pole

Morning all!

1st of may!! Spring is well and truly here now!!
I'm here today with my DT creation at The Craft Garden!


This month's challenge is based on the inspirational piccy of a maypole!! hop over to the challenge to see!!!

My card this morning was inspired by a Magnolia make i saw months ago by the lovely Mary from the Magnolia DT, she created a lovely maypole card so i thought i'd have ago at one myself!


I don't normally like some of the border strips that come out from docrafts they're not me, but i really liked the sunflower fence that was out last year, im running low on it now so fingers crossed i'll pick some more up from the website!

Here's my finished card! I actually impressed myself the way it came out because there's quite a mix of colours i was suprised how well it all went together!
