May CCC now at Lily Pad Cards

It's time for signing up for the Card Chain for May!  It has been moved to Lily Pad Cards now, and the rules have been slightly changed; we make the card FIRST, then sign up, and after the deadline, Deborah will let us know where to send it.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with this monthly challenge, we are given a choice of a sketch, a color palette, and several themes;  all we have to do is choose one of the criteria, make a card, and then send it off.  In return we get a card from someone else in the challenge, and since we are world-wide, it could come from anywhere!  Here's the card I made this month, following the sketch and the color palette:


supplies: kraft, pink, canteloupe, and pale yellow cardstocks, Hero Arts H5426 Artists Butterfly, Penny Black #30-067 To You, Versafine onyx black ink, clear embossing powder, Martha Stewart doily border punch, Hero Hues pearls


Hope you can join us!  You have until this Friday, May 6 at 11:59pm EST to make your card and link it here.

I'd also like to enter this into the paper-piecing challenge at Wee Memories.
