Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - A Stamped Flower

Before I get on to the theme of this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, I'd like to say a big welcome to our new DT members:

They all have fabulous blogs...well worth a look, and their first challenge with us will be on March 2nd.

Ok, on to this week's challenge, which has set by Wendy, and the theme is:

'A Stamped Flower'

I have quite a few flower stamps...but they rarely get a look in, so it was good to have a rummage through my stamps for this challenge. The flower I've used is from the 'Art Deco' set by Woodware, which I coloured with watercolour pencils, then cut out using my Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter) I couldn't decide which papers to use on this card, so in the end chose not to use any, and instead use my Cuttlebug 'Kassie's Brocade' and 'Victoria' folders (available here at the Secret Crafter) on plain card for the background. I added a large bow of seam-binding ribbon...which may have fallen into my basket while I was picking up some bits and pieces for my recent candy ;0) and a few adhesive pearls (available here at the Secret Crafter)

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
