Cheerful stamp pad challenge 83: 'add some flowers' week 2

It's time for some more inspiration from the team at the Cheerful Stamp Pad for challenge 83: add some flowers. Please click here to see the lovely creations of the rest of the team - and we hope that you will get those flowers out and join in here.

For my design card I used Penny Paisley 4 by Bugaboo Stamps (our sponsor) colouring the image digitally in Microsoft Paint. The added red hat is a My Sentiments Exactly stamp inked with fired brick distress ink. I matted the image on to a piece of card that had been dabbed all over with a 'shades of mauve' Blending Blox ink pad by Marvy (I'd forgotten I'd  got this - don't even remember buying it!) This was also used behind the printed poem (you can read the poem here). I used a variety of papers and flowers.
