Flower Power

This is a very exciting post for me, as it's my first as part of a design team! I'm so pleased the lovely ladies over at Oldie But A Goodie asked me to join their merry little band - didn't take long to accept the invitation I can tell you!

Thank you so much you guys, for inviting me into your team. I'm really looking forward to working with you all in the coming weeks & getting to know you all better.

Anyway, the current challenge was set by Lisa, it's;
Buttons & Bows
and it's sponsored by Stampelkallan.

As luck would have it, I actually have some Stampelkallan stamps, so decided to use one on my card this time. All the stamps are available from the Stampelkallan site - this one was coded "Design Annike." I've coloured it with Promarkers & combined it with old Papermania Paper & an LOTV stamp.

To add a bit of dimension to my card, I double stamped the flower and raised the flower heads on foam pads.

Actually, these flowers really remind me of ones currently flowering in our garden - haven't a clue what they're called, but they do bring a lovely splash of colour. Jx
