Flowers

Hi everyone, well I survived my first day back at work!!!
Todays card is something a little different for me.  I have used Daisys from the Stamping Boutique and coloured them with copics.  Decided to use some more vibrant blues which I dont often use.
The postcard is a stamp from Lili of the Valley and the card candi and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.
The papers are all snippets!





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Ribbon and Lace
I copic - Unloved Colours (very rarely use the blues on the watering can as usually favour a more muted blue!)
Die cut Dreams - at least 5 flowers (these are in the image so I hope thats ok)
Jules Snippet Challenge - all the patterned papers are snippets.
