Flour Power

This is  my second GDT card for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and I've had to schedule it again.  I will be spending the day with my Mum - Dad is still very unwell and in hospital, I don't think we will be bringing him home any time soon.

The theme for this fortnights challenge is - Flower Power or Flour Power, we would like you to use an image with a flower or cooking flour.  Make sure you pop over the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for more details and to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and great prizes.

I chose to go with the Cooking Flour option and have used another fabulous Happy Hopper image, this card is for my Mum, she will be 85 next month and still loves to bake.

The papers are Pink Petticoat and I have used Kraft card stock for the base.  I punched the border with my Fiskars border punch and added some little clay charms and ribbon from my stash.  I have stamped a LOTV sentiment onto a tag from The Digi Stamp Boutique

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and design:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Polka Doodles Week 20 - Spring Colours/Pastels
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 104 - Anything Goes
