A Bunch of Flowers for Allsorts Challenge

Happy Saturday, it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge! Lynn is hosting this week and her optional theme is..."A Bunch of Flowers"! We'd love for you to follow the option but of course any of your new crafty things are welcome, so hopefully you'll join in with us this week for a chance to win or to be selected for the top 5!  It's your last chance to play for the June prizes which come from Sizzix, AALL and Create, Aldridge Crafts, Lavinia and Ruth Hamilton Design and will be announced this Friday, June 30th!!

And here is my card share:

I combined 2 Penny Black stamps to create this joyful scene - Poppy Field and Spontaneous Joy. This hedgie was one of my very first Penny Black stamps and he's still a favorite. The sentiment is also from Penny Black from the set Blooming Sentiments, which is perfect for all kinds of floral/garden themed creations. Inked the edges with Distress ink and then stamped my old French Script around the edges. It's a one layer card adhered to a white card base.
