Had to do a weekend shop last night and then have dinner, but i did find time to design this card for a brand new challenge blog! Have to fit some crafting in most days if i can ;0)

The challenge set out over at Stamp Something is 'First Somethings'
OK, now to the challenge! This whole endeavor is a first for all of us, so in keeping with the theme of "Firsts," our challenge this week will be "First Somethings." Challenge yourself to try something entirely new.

I have often seen stamping onto paper flowers on some of the fab blogs i visit, but i have never tried it myself, so... for my 'first' time of trying this out i decided to design a card for a 'first' Wedding Anniversary, and as i am sure you are aware that the traditional gift for this occasion is
paper!! so the flowers fit in quite well :) Hope to be back later with some more designs! Enjoy your day :)

supplies used:- Prima flowers, Basic Grey papers, Hero Arts stamps, Distress ink, hearts and circles sparkled with Glamour Dust, and my trusty corner rounder punch, (wings removed to create scallops)
