Flowers are love's truest language

Hi everyone, just a quick post this morning as I really must go tackle the ironing.....

Here's a card I've made with the Joanna Sheen - Flower power challenge in mind.

 The stamps are by Crafters Companion and have been in my stash for a few years now. It's only since I started blogging in February that I've really started stamping....I hope I'm improving. I've coloured using promarkers. The backing papers are from DCWV Floral prints and Dovecraft Aquamarine floral prints by Kate Knight. Both these paper packs have been in my stash for's good to be using these things at last. I've distressed the edges of the papers with a Tim Holtz distressing tool. The purple panel has been punched with a Martha Stewart round the page punch. I've added several gems using my heat setter. I've edged the card with pearl purple Brilliance ink.
 This isn't my usual style of card really, I tend to go more for cute images, so I'd really value your opinions. Thank you for visiting and welcome to my newest followers. I hope you like what you see.

I would also like to enter this for There she goes - flowers

Happy crafting
