Flowers from Bamboo - Party Paws Crafters Companion

Good evening everyone from a cold and miserable North East. Welcome to my new followers.
Continuing the tale of my car.... I had all the work done at a local garage rather than the main dealers for £315, a saving of £270.... amazing what a difference it was to do exactly the same work.
So that will still leave me lots of lovely birthday money to spend at Harrogate next week :)

I couldn't resist buying the latest release from Crafters Companion, Party Paws, and got the 2 cds and 3 of the stamps.  So today's card uses one of the stamps 'Flowers from Bamboo'.

I loved this image as soon as I saw it and made it into a commissioned card for a friend. She likes 8x8's But I think this image would be better on a 6x6. I cut her using a SB labels 25 and added a faux nestie behind her. I added a MB tree and butterfly, Whimsey corners and MS punched leaves. The flowers are from WOC and gems and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is LOTV.

She is coloured with Promarkers and I added distress ink for the sky and around the papers which are from the Party Paws cd and from Boofle.

The inside does reflect the front

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look

My candy is still up for grabs until Tuesday
