In Bloom at Little Claire

Hi Folks
Today sees the start of a new stamping challenge over at Little Claire's Designs.  Our theme for this month is:
In Bloom
So let's see those creations with lots of flowers.

Here is my inspiration project using a small gerbera stamp from the Gerbera stamp set.

I stamped the gerbera stamp several times onto parchment and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then cut them out and added a purple dazzler to the centre.  For the background I used an embossing folder for the green part.  For the sky I coloured some white card with distress ink and added a border stamp for the greenery.  Some punched butterflies, a sentiment, ribbon and bow finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to Little Claire's Designs for full challenge details.  Here is the prize on offer to this month's winner:

'Butterfly Blossom' stamp
'You are Lovely' Flowers stamp
'Ever so Lovely' stamp
1 x 12x12 Lilac Gingham paper

1m x the following ribbons:
Green ric rac
Red ric rac
Pale blue gingham
Lilac spotty organza
Springtime flowers

Wowee, what a prize!
