Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 76

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 76: anything goes with a twist ... use a die or punch. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut out The Stamping Boutique image, Audrey with a cupcake, kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. This had been coloured with Chameleon pens. The die cut was mounted on a piece of Pink Petticoat vintage rose paper. The background paper and the pink and white flower panel offcut are from the Pink Petticoat wild blossoms collection. Washi tape from Paperchase (a bargain buy) and flowers from Hobbycraft.

I'm also adding this card for my Patterned Paper April challenge - if you haven't discovered that yet, please take a look and join in the challenge.
