Have a Bloomin' Birthday

'Flora and Fauna',  is the next challenge theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Now I know these flowers do not look like flowers we grow in our gardens, but these Jofy Stamps  from Paper Artsy sure make my daisies look a bit  special,  when they pop up in the lawn.
To be honest I do like these quirky stamps and use them quite a bit  for summery cards.

As you can see I made a simple easel card, with the stamped area layered up on some flowery papers.

The background colour is Mustard Seed distress ink, used very sparingly. I used Frantage embossing powder round the edges and corners. All shading of the images is watercolours.

Please pop over to FSC for all the details and see what my DT sisters have been making.

Thank you for yours comments which I always appreciate.
