Flower power with Marlies

Good morning, time for our mid month post and today I am pleased welcome Marlies who is sharing her 'Go to Stamp' which follows this month theme of 'Anything with Flowers', you will find the challenge post below this month and you have until 2nd August to join in for a chance to win the fabulous store voucher from Crafty Individuals. I will hand you over to Marlies...........

"It's my turn for our Mid Month Inspiration and we are using our "Go to Stamps". I have a few "go to" stamps but the stamp I used is one of my first Bildmalarna stamps and very much used for Birthday and Thank You cards.  I've coloured her with Distress ink.

The sentiment is also a stamp from Bildmalarna. Sadly no longer available as Bildmalarna has stopped.

As you can see lots of flowers on my card, stamped and handmade, the papers and even the lace looks like little daisies.

 I hope this gives you a little inspiration to join in with our Anything with Flowers challenge".
