Mimosa Hello and a Blog Award ....

This is one of the two Bildmalarna (I can never spell that!) stamps that I have and it's called 'Mimosa Hello' - I thought it was perfect for making a spring card in the hope that we might actually get some more spring weather here this year!  

The paper I've used is from a Nitwits pack that was a give away with a recent magazine (lots of great patterns in it) and I've layered it with kraft paper.  I've added a bit of ink to the paper flowers to take the whiteness off them and used Adirondack Cool Peri ink round the edge of my die cut shape.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Paper Pretties Blog Challenge - 'use lots of layers'
I Love Promarkers - 'spring time'
One Stop Craft Challenge - 'pastel and die cuts'
The Crafty Pad - 'just die-licious'
Totally Papercrafts - 'bingo (flowers, lace, pink)'
Paper Sundaes - 'sundae bar - kraft, lace, die cuts'
Cupcake Craft Challenge - 'spring is in the air'
Crafty Sentiments Challenge - 'spring using pastel colours'

I've also received a blog award from the lovely Tracey and also from Crafty Nanny - thank you both!
