Guest Designer Ooh La La Challenge #83 - Summer Flowers

Here is my last card as a Guest Designer for Ooh La La Challenge, I've really enjoyed my time creating for them and would like to thank the Ooh La La ladies for letting me play along.  This week's challenge is Summer Flowers which is a really easy theme.  I got completely hung up on this gorgeous background paper, from the Floral Extravaganza CD, which looks so much like my English roses that are flowering their hearts out at the moment and I decided to make the paper as big a star of the card as I could.   I added a watercoloured Crafty Individuals stamp, which is a stamp I got when I renewed my Craft Stamper subscription.  The image has been lying on my desk a while and it nearly worked with the paper, but it was a bit yellowy.  Inspiration struck and I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, something I used to use a lot and have neglected for the past year or so.  I like the way it looks on this vintage style stamp.
I followed the Sketch Saturday layout, adding some little bits of ribbon a lacy ribbon, decoupaging some of the roses from the Ooh La La toppers and adding a Sheena Douglass sentiment stamp.
My card is also for the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - sketch
CD Sunday - mixed bouquet
Craft your days away - vintage
Totally Gorjuss - ribbons & lace
Shopping Our Stash - tools of the trade (Glimmer Mist)
