Wildflower Garden

Apologies for the not very interesting card... still really busy so I haven't had chance to make anything else that I can show today.

This is another one of my new stamps (naughty!), a Hero Arts one called Wildflower Garden.  I've stamped it on a scrap of Pink Petticoat gingham, which was printed out on linen cardstock.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up, ribbon and pearls are from my stash.  I probably would have preferred this card on a white base, but I'm determined to use some of the coloured blank cards I've had since I first started cardmaking!  For some reason it seemed like a good idea to buy lots of them, but I never think to use them.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Keeping this brief so I can rush off and leave some comments...

I think this is lovely, really unusual and delicate. I've made the decision to try to use up all my old stash too. It makes me think a bit more creatively I think.

It's just so lovely Lisa, gorgeous image and love the gingham. I still have a mountain of card blanks that I had to have when I started and may never use. Hope the prep for Saturday is going well.
