Handmade Flowers at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, our challenge for April at Vintage Stamping Challenges is 'Handmade flowers' one of my favourite themes. As always our generous sponsors Flonzcraft have a $20 voucher for our lucky winner and my teamies have some gorgeous projects to inspire you so pop over to the challenge blog if you have a min.

For my card I've used this beautiful stamp is called Birds on a Branch and you can find it here. i've coloured it with my Graph'It markers and die cut will spellbinders die and layering it up on kraft card. The background was  made using  stencil and distress inks.

I've layered the image up over some burlap and die cut trellis and then added my die cut flowers (coloured with PanPastels) and some raffia, pearls and a little button topped with a twine bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Corner: animal fun

My time to craft: Get krafty
Sister Act: anything goes
