Getting ready for those May flowers

Yes, it's time to spend more time playing in the dirt than playing with crafts.  There are just a few exceptions, one of them being Mojo Monday.  So I've used an April Showers Bring May Flowers theme and the Tall & Skinny Mojo Monday Sketch to make a birthday card for my daughter, who was born May 1st!  Although, this card could be used for just about any occasion.

This card is my entry in the following challenges:
The Paper Girls Challenge #78 - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Eclectic Ellapu April Challenge - Purple Team April Showers/Spring
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Under the Weather
Time Out Challenge #29 - You can't make a rainbow without a little rain

I just realized that the Color Throwdown Challenge # 339 closes in 6 hours so I am also posting this yellow, black and white card using the flowers I cut to make my stencil for Saturday's card.
