Whimsical Flower

This lovely flower stamp is another of my charity shop finds.  Although the sentiment stamp was missing from the packet I thought the flower would be lovely to paper piece.  I made the card with papers from a new Lili of the Valley 'Pressed in Time' paper pad that Di has recently sent me - thank you Di.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Woodware 'Whimsical Flower - Sally Anne' and Clearly Besotted 'Fabulous Fuchsias' stamps
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Lili of the Valley ''Pressed in Time' papers
     Snippet of white matt card

I stamped the flower and sentiment onto a piece of white matt card, trimmed the panel to 4.75" square, layered it onto a slightly larger piece of green paper and attached it to the front of the card blank.  I stamped the stem and leaves onto green paper, the flower centre onto brown paper and the petals onto a pink flower from a piece of floral paper.  These were then fussy cut and attached to the image on the card.

I am entering the following challenges:
     Happy Little Stampers Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes
     NBUS - Challenge 57 (my new Woodware stamp)
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
     We Love Stamping - Anything Goes

Well done with the paper piecing of this pretty flower, Kath! It's made a beautiful card and it reminds me how much I love doing that technique and how long it's been since I had a play! Thank you for inspiring everyone to use their NBUS! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
