Vintage flower power

Morning All and thanks for popping in

I have to say my body is aching today having spent yesterday 
digging out the compost hot bin. But the result is fantastic
wonderful compost. 

Have you heard about a Hot Bin here is a link for you to have a look
for all those budding gardeners. 

Now back today for a card - a CAS card for today.

I made this card the other day using Hobby Art Vintage flower stamp

Stamped it onto a snippet of card 

Painted it with Pink glitter pen and used my brush to blend it out to the edges. 

Cut it down to a square -
Mounted onto snippets of coloured card from my stash. In fact cut the flower down to 
match the size of snippets of coloured card. 
 Using the "wrong" 
coloured card blank I used ink to blend to pink
to match the theme to make the "right" card blank. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in. 

Best go and hang out the washing now.

Have a very good day with lots of sunshine and love.
