More inspiration for the Cheerful stamp pad 'anything goes' challenge

This is my design card for the second week of the 'anything goes' challenge on the Cheerful stamp pad. Please click here to see the lovely inspirational crafting of the rest of the team and click here to go to last week's post to link your entries.

I matted this beautiful Easter image from Gecko Galz (challenge sponsor) on to an offcut of striped paper. I covered the card blank with a piece of Raspberry Road Designs paper and simply added two golden yellow flowers that were left from a pack that I bought years ago from Early Learning Centre (how I wish they had continued to stock them).

I'm sharing this on my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March challenge - if you haven't yet discovered this challenge blog, please visit and join in the fun - and you could be the randomly chosen prize winner of two packs of 6 x 6 papers.

Colours for the Shabby tea room 209: spring is near - include baby blue, birds and spring flowers:
