Flowers Galore for Allsorts Challenge #784

Hello everyone, a new challenge starts today at Allsorts and Lorraine's (Lolo's)   optional theme is "Flowers Galore". As always you may enter up to 3 times for more chances to win so hopefully you can join us with Flowers Galore or Anything Goes! Prizes come from Craft StashHighlight Crafts and AALL and Create for challenges 784, 785 and 786. 

Btw., all posts going forward until the end of the month are scheduled as I plan to spend quality time with family visiting us from overseas. There were several posts to do and hopefully I didn't mess up or forgot any of them! 

I thought this was the perfect time for me to ink up this beautiful stamp I purchased last year. It's an oldie from Penny Black (Scented Message 4239K) and it had been on my wish list for quite some time. When it finally showed up on eBay at a great price last year I had to get it. No idea why it took me this long to finally ink it up!! The stamp is not so easily found so I have no link, but does appear on eBay occasionally.

I made a CAS card with it. Simply stamped on the card front and colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Then I added a die cut frame. "Happy Birthday" is from the MFT set Bitty Basics and the circle sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps button sentiments (long retired). It came with a matching button die which I also used here. I tied some black and white gingham ribbon to the button before adding to the card. Edges were lightly inked with blue ink and glitter was added to the flower centers.
