Day of the Month Card Club - National Dandelion Day

Hi Everyone,

It's "National Dandelion Day" day, which is celebrated on April 5th. 
Many people consider dandelions weeds, but they are actually edible and are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and D. They are delicious in soups and salads. They also bloom early, giving bees and insects well needed nourishment after the long winter. 

The technique for this card I learned from Heindesign. It is quite simple. Tear some post it notes and mask a square. Take acrylic paint and paint stripes onto the masked area and then spread the paint with a sponge a bit so you can still see the original stripes, but not so much as to smear all the paint together. Let it dry. Dab white acrylic paint onto your stamp and stamp. Clean off the stamp immediately after use.

The sentiment is by STAMPlorations.

Now I hope you will have time to 

I am counting on you! You have until the end of the month (4/31) to do so.

This is a voting challenge - the winner will be determined by vote. Everybody can vote, even if you didn't play along. Voting starts on the first of the following month - June first. 
The 3 participants with the most votes will win. 
The winners will be showcased on the 5th of each month and the new challenge will start each month on the seventh.
And to make it more fun and appealing it would be great if you could comment on at least 3 other participants - perhaps you'll find some new friends that way. 

There is always a reason to celebrate!

Your new technique sounds so easy but you make everything sound easy, don't you. Clearly, it creates a beautiful & eye-catching backdrop for your dandelions. It really is a WOW! card.

Those dandelion clocks (what we always called the seed heads!) are so delicate and pretty, Cornelia ... fabulous against that cool background! Hugs, Anita :)
