Sweet Stampin' DT card

Hello fellow bloggers

And how are we all today?  Keeping well I hope.

As the title says here is my card for this weeks Sweet Stampin' challenge.  The prize this time has been kindly donated by my teams' leader Fi and is the chance to choose two Sugar Nellie stamps.  Now that is a prize I'd like!

The challenge this week is a photo inspiration and here is the wonderful photo:
Isn't it just beautiful, but boy what a headache it gave me to match it!  I didn't know whether to go with the colours or the bouquet so I, hopefully!, did both and here is my card:

I used:

Stamp: Stamping Bella - Bessie LULU; coloured with my Prisma pencils.  Die-cut and matted onto Nesties.
Papers: Prima Fairy Flora paper pad.
Border: a Die-namics die - Dainty Lace Boder.
Swirl: a Marianne Creatables die - LR0119 (there are two of them, I just arranged them on the card and glued 'em together to make some sort of cornery swirl).
Gems from my stuff.
Card blank I made.

Looking forward to see what all you talented people out there make of it and, remember, you've got to be in it to win it so why not head over to the blog and participate - we don't bite promise :-)

They are gorgeous colours indeed & I love the way you've matched them sweetie. The card is so pretty. We had rain in the day yesterday so by the time we went out it was wet underfoot but we could stand & watch without getting drenched thankfully xx
