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'.

Hobbycraft visit

John had to go to a meeting to do with his bowls club this morning, so he had a car there and got the driver to take me on to Hobbycraft at Crayford and then they came back to pick me up.

I only managed to pick up a few bits and pieces - lol!
