We have a 'ANYTHING WITH FLOWERS' theme for our February challenge at Stamping Sensations. 
Please remember we are a STAMPING challenge so must see a stamped image/sentiment as the focal point of your entry.
I needed a 'Thank You' card and couldn't find one in my stash!
I made this after seeing something similar on Pinterest (where else!)- this was a relatively quick card to do.

 I used Antique Linen DI on the background and a little bit of Tea Dye round the edges.
A few random stampings using Timeless Textures set and a 'chicken wire' stamp to give a bit of interest to the background.

The main stamp is from SU's Helping Me Grow set.
I coloured it with Inktense Watercolours, and added a bit of white gel pen to the flowers.

Matted it onto cream card then added the ribbon before layering it up onto the sandy coloured base card.

Hope you can find time to join us this month - we have a great prize on offer £25 worth of goodies from our sponsors Bee Crafty!

Have a great day whatever you're all doing!
