What no Magnolia!!!

No cute image in sight and I must say it was so enjoyable to do I really loved doing the distress inks and the image is just superb!! Saw this corner Indigo Blu Anemone stamp a few weeks ago but when I went to buy it "Sold Out" but luckily I found it! I just love it although I could do with a larger acrylic block as its so big!
I have stamped the image out twice so that I could layer the flowers which I have coloured in pro markers.
Just love the flowers and the sentiment is from Tim Holts I must say since doing a similar card for my Mum on Mothers Day I really do love the look of these cards! Once I had coloured the image I distressed the background with Tim Holts inks and then stickled around the edges.
The Poppy paper if from Graphic 45 "Wizard of Oz" added plain black card and black ribbon!

Love it!! I am entering the following challenges:

Lets Ink it Up - Distress
2 Sisters -Birthday
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Stamp Something

Well that's it for now will be back later I'm off to the Doctor's yet again!!! lol

 Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx
