Where have all the flowers gone?

Hello everyone - what a lovely day it is today so sunny!  I have just got back from Cheshire with my sister and it is so nice to see all the blossom and the vibrant green of new foilage starting to peek through.  I hope everyone is seeing a bit of sunshine today.

I have made a card today for the Penny Black Challenge which is based on music or a song.  I have chosen Where have all the flowers gone which is a bit tongue in cheek for this card:


Hehe they have all gone on my card lol!!  I have done some masking for this using six different stamps.  I have used my Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour.  Spellbinders die for the flower and image.  Memory Box die for the clouds which I have used a computer generated sentiment.  The papers are a new First Edition called Boho.  Gems are from my stash.  I will enter the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Sing-along
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Penny Black and More - Oh so Cute
Pile it On - Create a Scene
Mark's Finest Papers - Square Card
Crafts 4 Eternity - 3 of a Kind
Poodles Parlour - Going Dotty
Moving Along with the Times - Cute'n'Cuddly
Little Darlings - Outside
Deep Ocean - Masking
Little Red Wagon - Clouds

Well I hope you are enjoying your weekends whatever you are up to, we're off to the pub soon for our Sunday dinner pointless cooking one for two (that's my excuse lol)! Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave - take care xx
