Say it with Flowers

Another month passed and time for May's Stamping Sensations challenge -  which is 'FLOWER POWER'.

I chose to do a CAS card for a friends birthday - she does NOT do fussy in any shape or form and would have glared at me if I'd so much as added a ribbon or pearl anywhere!
And I apologise for the rather poor pic... try as I might I couldn't get the colour on the pic to reflect the actual card!

The card actually has a bright white background, not the reproduction here.

I used Versafine Crimson Red ink which is a lovely rich shade for all the stamps (which are from SU Morning Meadow).
I fussy cut the large flower then added a dot of Pearl Maker to the stamens and dabbed a little on each of the smaller flower heads in the sprays.
Matted the stamped panel onto a piece of Regal Red card which happily for me was a perfect colour match!

Our sponsors this month are Crafty Individuals and I hope you can pop across to the blog and see what else the team has made and that you'll take part for a chance to win a fab prize!
