St Lukes Hospice Challenge Spring into Spring

Hello All
Fabulous weather here in Gib....My tan is being topped up quite nicely....
I have made another card for St Lukes i have used the same stamp as my 1st card....but it looks so this Hero Arts Stamp....i made the background idea i seen in this months Craft Stamper...collect some leaves and flowers...i used Geranium Leaves...Flowers Pansies Geraniums ...using your big shot machine place flowers on a piece of card and run through you machine ...have a piece of kitchen roll handy as some of the juice comes out the flowers...carefully take flowers and leaves off .and let it dry...and you have this wonderful background paper ...i have done lots using different cardstock and different flowers...give it a try..
Picture not so good the light was just going .....
Thanks for looking
Sylvie xx
