Say It With Flowers

Morning everyone!  Now I know I said that I would show you the rest of Mum's snowflakes but I thought I'd hold onto them for a bit and wait to see if we get any more snow and post them up then so that it is 'seasonal'!!

So instead I've got a flowery card for you today which I thought I'd enter into the Penny Black At Allsorts Say It With Flowers challenge.  I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called Clusters and used another favourite PB stamp - Scrolling Along to decorate around my main image and the background panel. 

I stamped the burgundy panel with Moonlight White Brilliance ink and the Mince Flourish stamp by Judikins.  I'm afraid that I can't remember whose the 'Friends Always' stamp is but the 'Birthday Wishes' is a Craftwork Cards Oh My Words! Message.

The flowers were coloured using Coloursoft pencils and then glittered using Stickles.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Your card is stunning Kay. I just love the colours you have used, they work so well together. Great idea using the stamp on your main image and the background too. Even your spotted ribbon works so well with your beautifully colour co-ordinated card.
Thank you for sharing it with us at Penny Black at Allsorts and good luck in the challenge.
