Say it with flowers


I have had this adorable LotV kitty stamp for about two months now, but shame on me I haven't made a card with it until now. But this week there are a number of flowery challenges for which I thought this image was just perfect (or should I say purrfect!)

I followed the great sketch for this fortnight's Lili of the Valley Challenge #53 ...

... and would also like to enter this card for

Papertake Weekly - Say It With Flowers
Sir Stampalot May Challenge - Butterflies and blossoms
Cupcake #91 - Blooming Charming
C.R.A.F.T. #51 - Birthday / celebrations
Charisma #20 - 3D (2nd entry)

Here's a closeup of the charm I used .. it's one of my favourites. I'm also really loving the Papermania paper pads this season ... I can't decide which one to pick up first lol!!


... and here's a closeup of my flowers. Nope the rose isn't from Wild Orchid Crafts - it's actually from Hobbycraft!


Recipe:
Main image: LotV "Thomas - Big Bunch of Flowers", colorued with Promarkers;
Sentiment: See-D "Celebration messages";
Papers: Papermania "Rose Garden";
Supplies: rose and blossoms from Hobbycraft; pearls from The HobbyHouse; charm from Bunny Zoe's Crafts;
Tools: "Labels Four" nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Valentine Lace" edge punch and small "monarch butterfly" punch.
