May Challenge - Use Flowers

Morning to you all,
It's been a while since I shared a card with you so apologies for not being around much recently.  My mind has been elsewhere over the last few weeks and haven't really felt like card making.  I think we can now see a light at the end of the tunnel though!

My card today is for the May challenge over at Spectrum Noir and the theme is use flowers - they can be part of the image on the paper, embellishments or die cuts....what could be easier?  Check out the DT cards here and details on how to enter

Coloured with Spectrum Aqua pens - Charcoal, slate, black, bud green, moss, red, violet, terracotta, fawn , gold, marigold

The stamp is from Crafters Companion Party Paws - Bamboo

Thanks for popping over today.

Have a good day.
