Purple blossom

Hi, I've made another card to celebrate a family birthday, it's tomorrow so luckily I'm handing it over and not posting it! It's for my step dad who loves gardening, so I thought the purple and black
kept it masculine looking.

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper using twinkling H2Os, then touched it up with an aqua brush.

I'm linking up to the challenge at CASology where the theme is blossom.

At AAA Cards the theme is bare naked CAS.
Í've matted the image with a couple of layers, so I hope it's CAS enough.

At Fantasy Stampers the theme is Spring is in the air,  you do need to use a stamped image.

Rubbernecker blossom stamp; twinkling H2Os; tombow marker for the stems; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

I know you love butterflies and flowers right away reminded me of just they. Your card has inspired me to create a card with butterflies flowers :-) But I have yet to find the time.
