something different for me - Creative Inspirations challenge 97-sketch + Papertake Weekly Anything goes with flowers

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well and if your in the wind areas I hope your all safe...we have it bad enough here but not a patch on other places and all those poor people in Australia my heart goes out to them...we had a quiet day yesterday, just sat in watching the rain pelt the window and then Phil cooked my chicken in honey and mustard, garlic potatoes and green beans it was yum yum yum, we were going to go out for a long walk today but as we haven't got our Arctic weather gear out of storage we may not lol...anyway today's card is something a little different for me, how amazingly beautiful is this Stemplglebe stamp, I won here from the lovely Jane, thank you so much Jane...if your looking for it though Nikki at Bunny Zoes Crafts has it in stock here, I know this is amazing just stamped but I couldn't resist adding just a touch of colour with Distress inks, I wanted it to look like one of those hand coloured vintage photograph, what do you think did I manage it?...the stunning papers are from Bunny Zoe's crafts and are Kaisercraft Rose Garden paper pad, aren't the colours so soft and beautiful...I had a rummage in my mysterious box I found and added some fantastic flowers, some punched leaves, velvet black ribbon and a beautiful crystal charm from my Secret Santa at Colour Create...the sketch is from Creative Inspirations challenge and I'm also entering this for the Papertake Weekly challenge too...well if off to find a thermal vest to wear lol, have a brilliant day everyone

Good morning Mina, the wheather here is cold, wet and tomorrow also stormy so I stay nice and warm in the house for a couple of days I think. Love your image and card, so beautiful and just your little colouring makes it perfect!
