Fussy and Fancy Challenge #137 Springtime flowers

Springtime Flowers .... What a lovely challenge this is, just when we can see our gardens are starting to come to life again. This time our host is the lovely Vanessa and sponsored by Marianne Designs and Sweet Lilac Flowers.
So here is my offering for this time:

I have had this lovely collage stamp (Marianne Designs 'With Love' stamp CS0866) for a while now, I bought it originally because the little girl reminds me of a photo of my niece, Meg as a bridesmaid. I decided that this might be time to use it, I also used Marianne Dies: Foliage ... LR0151 & LR 0271 &
Mats........LR0236. Having stamped the image with Sepia Archival inkpad, the rest of the colour scheme just fell into place. My choice of flowers was based on the earliest flowers in my garden which are daffodils & the blossom on my trees.

So there it is a very simple card using very different colours for me, sometimes it's good to get out of your 'comfort zone'. I would love you to give this challenge a go it is so easy to enter, more details here . The F&F girls really love looking at your blogs or you can enter via email, and because the winner is randomly selected everyone has an equal chance.

Must dash now as Jasper our Black Lab has decided it's time for a walk
