From your garden at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning my lovelies, well I'm not sure it such a good morning as I'm back at work but I suppose I've got to earn a crust to pay for those crafty goodies. We've got a brand new challenge starting at Flonzcraft Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'From your Garden', you don't have to create a vintage project to join in but we are a stamping challenge so we do want to see a stamp as the focal image of your project. As always theres's a $20 voucher for our lucky winner from Flonzcraft .

I got these gorgeous shaped cards from Which Craft? at summer crafting and this is the first time I've used one, they are so pretty. I used these gorgeous Prima Believe papers, distressed with antique linen distress ink. I've added  lots of die cut butterflies and some pretty flowers and buttons from my stash. I've added a verse on the front from Chocolate Baroque and inside I've stamped 'Happy Birthday' across the twosstepped sections, but pure serendipity they lined up lol

The focal image is from Flonzcraft, I just love this gorgeous little girl, she's been coloured with Graph'It markers. I've added  and lots of little pearls to the butterflies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Anything goes: in the garden plus butterflies
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment
ART card challenge: ribbon and pearls
Delicious doodles: anything floral
Seize the birthday: anything goes

Thanks for popping by folks, have a good day
