My first ever Wednesday Stamper

This is it, I bit the bullet this week and decided to go for it! I have been following the Wednesday Stamper challenge site for quite a while, but have never felt that I had the time or talent to put in a submission. If you look at the incredible pieces of art that are regularly entered on the site, you'll see why! Well, this week I found I had the time, and the theme was 'flowers', one of my favourites, so I decided to challenge myself by making something I felt was acceptable for an entry. It was fun! And this is OK!
Stamps used are Stampendous, and my trusty PSX alphabet, inks are Distress inks in Weathered wood and Antique linen, and I used silver detail embossing powder on vellum for the flowers at the front. The corner punch is from Anna Griffin, and the flowers are from a pound shop! Thanks for looking!
