Printed flowers

I love colour challenges and also sketch ones, so this is a combination of the two, using the colour combo this week for the Color dare 60:

and the sketch for Diva coffee break designs 169:

I took inspiration from the cushions in the picture given for Divine diva inspiration 24:

The card is also for:

Glue, scissors, paper 17: 'spring is in the air' - use hand made flowers
Quirky crafts 24: 'flowers'
Practical scrappers: 'use something you've had for a year or more' - although the stamps were bought today, the papers are certainly more than a year old and haven't been used before
Hand full of stamps 20: 'remove the dust' - the BG papers I used
There she goes 47: 'simplicity'
Lucy's cards 7: 'clean and simple'
Creative cottage 2: 'flowers'
Fab n funky 15: 'use something new' - the Hero arts printed flowers stamps
Paperplay week 11: 'thank you' - part of the text on the printed flowers
Pixie dust studio 14: 'the power of 3' - I used each of the printed flower stamps 3 times
The treehouse 41: 'thank you theme'
365 cards day 17: 'twinchies' - it has one on the card

The papers are a mixture of BG blush (the background flowery paper) and obscure, printed some printed flowers on to some of the papers, using a couple of my new Hero arts stamps (one of my purchases this morning at Hobbycraft). Among the text on the flowers is 'thank you'.
