Plant Kindness

I bought this stamp set recently from Lili of the Valley as I thought the stamp was just so cute with that fat wee bird and I really liked the sentiment that came with it.  I had such fun colouring it in bright, summery colours, using my new summer Promarkers.  After colouring, I went round the edge of the topper with Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.
The papers are Papermania Summer Bloom, a gorgeous stack which is now somewhat depleted.  The colours and pretty designs are just so yummy!
The flowers and leaves were made with Woodware punches.
I went just a bit wild with the Stickles on this card, using Pink, Eucalyptus and Diamond, then added to the bling with gems.
Some ribbon and two bows finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Ladybug Crafts - #61 - something with wings
Stamp 'n' Doodle - sparkle and bling
Sweet Stamps - #66 - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - #77 - use something old, I used old papers, gems, ribbon and an old punch
Use it Tuesday - #32 - use two items of hoarded stash.  I've used old papers and mosaic gems
