Bloom and Grow, for Crafty Cardmakers Challenge

My first card as a DT member for Crafty Cardmakers is for Challenge 59 hosted by Fiona  and is to use -'No Floral Embellishments.
You can use floral backing paper and flowers in the image but no actual floral embellishments.
We have two sponsers this time.
One Stop Card Crafts who are offering a £10 store voucher as a prize.
Also, Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a $10 certificate for their store.

On this card I have used an old favourite stamp by Art Journey. I just love this little lad who seems to be growing out of the flower -pot, the daisy on the  stamped border is by Joanna Sheene.
Paper layers from my stash.
All the shading was done with wild honey distress inks, and I used watercolours  on the main image.
It was hard not to add a floral embellishment and have finished the card trim with  a cord passed though a couple of eyelets.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
