Allsorts Challenge: Flowers All Over

Hello everyone, it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. For the following few weeks our challenges will run for 2 weeks but we'll be back to weekly postings mid- August.

 Mervi is our host this time and she would like to see "Flowers Allover". Our prize this week comes from  Swedish House Crafts, hopefully you'll find some time to join in! Don't forget you have two weeks to link up :)

I completed this card before I left for vacation last month, I was hoping to be able to make another one (not completely  happy with this card) but I haven't had time to make cards for challenges yet since I returned so this one will have to do. I think I will re-work it and add some ribbon where the two papers meet...I think that will pretty it up a bit. 

This card was simple to make, I just inked up Penny Black's brushstroke stamp Bejeweled using a Distress marker, then stamped the wood mounted Penny Black sentiment "Dance Sing Love" directly over the flowers. By the way, if you're interested, this stamp is currently available brand new in my Etsy shop and it ships for free within the US. 
The designer papers are from my stash by a pack I picked up at a local craft store. 

Happy crafting!!
