Flower Power

Crafty Calendar Challenge are looking for cards with a 'Flower Power' theme this month. This is my interpretation, and I thought it would also be suitable to enter into The Pink Elephant's current challenge which is 'Spring'

The phrase 'Flower Power' conjures up a 60's/70's psychedelic design to me, so I tried to give my card that sort of 'retro vibe' with the colours used and the style of flowers.

The stamps used are by Elusive Images, and the stems are hand-stitched with green embroidery thread. (I did get my sewing machine out as I wanted to use a zig-zag stitch but discovered I had no green cotton, doh!) The grass idea is not my own and I have seen it on several blogs but unable to remember whose, I'm afraid. A computer generated sentiment and some stardust stickles (not visible as usual!) completes this very simple card.

Thank you for stopping to look.
