Circles, with pieced flowers

Got to say blog hopping is great fun at the moment, now that Christmas has passed it is as if someone has thrown colour every where!

This little card is very much inspired by all that I'm seeing around.  Inkadinkado pansy's stamped twice in Momento 'Paris Skies', and coloured with Promarkers.  The second stamping cut out and layered over the first with sticky pads.   Some seam binding coloured with purple distress stain and tied in a bow.   Seam binding and distress stain more sale bargains.   The sentiment also stamped in Momento is from Creative Expressions.

Challenges this week that this card is for are:
Designed 2 Delight - Winter flowers
Our Creative Corner - Shaped Cards
Allsorts - Paper piecing
Creations by Gill - Make a 3D project
Fashionable Stamping - Anything goes using new stash

  14. If you don't mind me saying Zoe, this is a little bit different for you, but it suits you very well.

    Flowers, lilacs and an easel, what more could I ask for ?

    I bought this stamp at the NEC last year and not seen it in ages, so need to put that right now you have inspired me.

    Thanks so much for joining in my Paper Piecing theme at Allsorts this week, good luck and hope to see you again.
