Inspired by the weather at fashionable Stamping challenges

Hi there, its challenge time at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and for the next two weeks our theme is 'inspired by the weather' chosen by little old me :-)
I do have a bit of a thing about the weather, and it means you can make anything from a snowy Christmas card to a summery scene or anything inbetween! As always our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft! Don't forget to make sure that stamping is the focus of your entry though as no digistamps are allowed!!

I've used one of my favourite stamps from Flonzcraft for this card, I love this silhouette of such an elegant lady walking her dog on a windy day (I wish I looked that elegant when i walked my dogs lol)

i've used a bp from my stash, inked around the edges with walnut stain distress ink and punched a couple of borders from scraps of some matching papers. I've stamped the image on another scrap of backing paper with Potting Soil archival ink and again inked the edges. I've layered the image up over a doily and added ribbon, a button and a bow. To finish off I've added some paper flowers, die cut swirls and some little pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: ribbon/button
Kitty Bee: dies/punches
Milk coffee: lots of layers
Really Reasonable Ribbon: anything goes with ribbon/trim
Sisters of Craft: anything goes

Thanks for popping by today
