Another new stamp ching-chou kuik's Nostalgia



I really can't get enough of these sweetpea stamps and if you are in the UK the only place to get them is at Crafts and me. The picture does not do this card justice the flowers with the wire flourishes look much better in real life. I have coloured her with promarkers and mounted the image on 2mm foam pads then edged it with a black peel off border. It took me ages to use the red cherry blossom background peel off to lie flat and I am still not 100% happy with it but I love the effect. All the peel offs are from my stash that I have mainly got in job lots from ebay so sorry can not say where they are from. The flowers are from papermania.
This card is for the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. - Citrus colours
Sophisticat - Flourishes and bling
Cupcake craft - Flower power
Crafty cardmakers - A feminine celebration
