Flower Power

I was lucky enough to win this lovely flower stamp recently over on Helen's Craft Haven blog, so I thought I'd use it for a 'Thank You' card.

The flower stamp is quite a large Woodware one, so I used a 7" x 5" white card base.  The image is coloured with Promarkers.  I originally coloured the centre of the flower, but changed my mind about the colour and paper pieced it with a snippet of patterned paper.  The pattern is very subtle, so it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  The sentiment stamp is an old wood mounted one - I'm not sure of the make.  I punched a border down the side of the purple mat with a Martha Stewart 'Half Daisy' border punch and added a white pearl to the centre of each half daisy.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  6. Stunning! That border punch and die could have been designed to work together. I bet it won't be long before we see the same stamp again, only this time coloured as a sunflower!

  26. Congratulations on this great win of a sweet image. Love the colors, and the delicate border that enhances this image so well. Enjoyed reading that you did some paper piecing, but bet the colored parts were pretty too. It's a very versatile image, so yay for you for having it in your stash. It made such a lovely card, and your color choices were perfect on this fresh spring card. TFS & Have a wonderful week.
