Summer Blooms at Vintage Stamping challenges

Good morning friends, can you believe its June already? Goodness me I dont know where this year is going. Our theme at Flonzcraft Vintage stamping challenges this month is 'Summer Blooms', you don't have to make a vintage project to enter as long as you follow the theme and make sure that stamping is the focus of your project. As always our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft and there are some gorgeous stamps to choose from!

I've coloured one of the gorgeous Gibson Girls from Flonzcraft with pencils, die cut with nesties and layer her up on some kraft card The backing paper is from Pion Design as is the paper I've used to make the flowers (using a Britannia Rose Die) I've added lace, pearls, ribbon topped with one of my favourite iridescent flower buttons and I've also added some memory box die cuts,  in the polka dot paper and in kraft I've used a teeny tiny bit of  Seedless Preserves DI to distress all the edges
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards Galore Encore: anything goes
Creative Card Crew: Shabby chic/vintage
Die Cut Divas: at least one embellishment
Hobbybook: at least 3 flowers
The Squirrel and the fox: girls

Unfortunately its time for me to go to work so thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
