A Gentle Whisper

I recieved this gorgeous stamp from Penny Black a few weeks ago and it's been sitting in my box of 'must use' supplies. So today I had the great pleasure of playing with it and I'm in love!

The bloom stamp is Gentle Whisper, the background is Friends from Hero Arts, embossed with Pearl powder.
The vintage tamp is an oldie from my stash. I coloured the flowers with a combination of Memento dye ink, distress inks, Twinkling H2Os and Heidi Swapp Color Shine (white) . The background was sponged with distress ink. The dragon fly die is one of my favourites from Penny Black and is coloured with Twinkling H2Os, distress ink and Wink of Stella for extra shimmer.

I added some micro beads to the centre of my flower, a pearl on the dragonfly and a jute bow for a bit of bling.
I would like to remind you about the current challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge - the theme is Spring and the optional element is *bird*. You have until 25 March to play.

I'm entering my card in the following challenge:-
