Lindy's Stamp Gang May 2015 Challenge

It's been a while since my last post - there are so many things I am taking care of right now - so my crafting time happens in short time frames.

This 8x8 canvas is for Lindy's Stamp Gang May challenge.  First let me say that I was so inspired by Elena Zemlyanskya's ( a Design Team member for Lindy's Stamp Gang) - that I just had to try one for myself.  If you click on her name - it will take you to her blog.  If you click on this link - it will take you to Elena's canvas on Lindy's Stamp Gang blog and a video tutorial.  

My canvas is not nearly as lovely as Elena's - and I think I might have overloaded it - but it was quite fun.  I used every single color of the month and each embossing powder from the Mega Set this month.  I used tons of old flowers and even some foam flowers and about 8 metal pieces and a couple of tab tops too!

If you click on the link under the picture - it will take you to Lindy's for the challenge details!

Directly above is the Lindy's Stamp Gang Mega Set and I used every single color and every embossing powder on my canvas.
