Happy May Day

Last night as I was falling of to sleep I realized that today is May Day.  I remember when I was young making may flowers baskets to give to my mom on May Day.  That got me to thinking and I decided that today I would make a door hanger in honor of May Day.  I started with a drink coaster from Outback Steak House that I have had forever.  I covered the coaster with paper from Echo Park For the Record.  Next I inked the edges with always artichoke ink.  The sentiment is one I won a few weeks ago form Creative Vision, thank you Laura. As I was finishing up I decided that that this wasn't working the way I wanted for a door hanger and decided that I would make it a magnet instead.  Now as usual I am also entering this into a few challenges which I have listed below. I hope you have a fabulous week.  Thank you for stopping by.
