The Flower Challenge #13 'Use Your Favourite Flower'

Hi there friends, I am super excited today to announce 
it's our 1st Birthday over at 'The Flower Challenge',
 can't believe we have been going for a whole year
Anyway we have lots of surprises for you there, I am
sure you will want to join in. We have Prizes, 
Guest Designers and great cards of course.
This month we would like you to
 'Use Your Favourite Flower', how easy is that ;)
Here is the cue card below for you to add when entering
 our challenge. Please make sure Flowers are the MAIN
image on your cards too.
 Please also read all our terms and conditions
there as we are giving away prizes this time we have
a few rules.  
We would hate for you to miss out by not

We also have a new look to our blog there, hope you like
our changes. Anyway here is my card, do try and join in
or at least visit our blog and see all the inspirational cards
For my first card this month I decided to use this amazing
flower stamp. I have used it a few times now as I really
love it. Definately one of my 'favourite flower' stamps
 at the moment. 
Concord & 9th, Hello Lovely, CAS
White Linen card
TH Water colour card
 Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamps (from SevenHillsCrafts)
My Favorite Things sentiment stamp (small hello)
Zig Clean Color pens
Versafine Black Onyx ink
Glamour dust
Clear gems
I stamped my flower stamp on to my water colour card.
Then I coloured it  using my Zig pens and a water brush.
Then I stamped my large sentiment onto the card. 
I took a very small scrap of card and stamped my
 small 'Hello' stamp on that leaving a space at the
 top. I coloured the space using a matching  Zig pen.
 I stuck that to my card using 3d pads to add a bit
 of height and interest. Once finished I added my
 panel to an A6 top fold card base. A touch of 
glamour dust and a sprinkling of clear gems
 completed my card.
Our challenge closes on the 25th October and we are
  back on the 15th with a Reminder card to share.
Good luck everyone !

Gorgeous Viv, such beautiful colouring, just love the combination of colours on your floral image and the gorgeous black sentiment. I always wished I had got this stamp - it's perfection in my option. I have never used glamour dust (how fun does that sound?!) Do I need it? How high is up? How long is a piece of string? Of course I need it ! Hugs, Lisa xx

Hello Vivien: This is a gorgeous card so beautifully colored. Love the awesome shades of blue with the bright pops of pink, the color wash on the outside of this lovely bouquet looks amazing.
