BEAUTY IN BLOOM

Today I have a card to share with you that is a little different than what I have been posting recently.  I bought this stamp from Hobbycraft several weeks ago and have been itching to stamp her up and colour her in and at last I have managed to do just that and this is what I came up with.
I have used a 7 x 7 black card base the papers are Curiosity Corner, I used my EK Success circle cutter for the central circles, I distressed the edges of the papers with my scissors then went over the edges with TH Vintage Photo Distress ink, the image I coloured with Graph It Markers, I used a Joy Crafts Butterfly Die I then added a doily form the same family as Curiosity Corner, some resin flowers, dove, gems and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting me hope you like what you have seen and please come back soon, you are always welcome.
