More Than One Stamp for LIM #174

The challenge this week over at Less is More is to use more than one stamp. Well, for this card I've managed three: the flower image, "Happy" and the dotty background. I've also just realised that I can enter this months "Tags and Scraplings" challenge over at Virginia's View. I *just* qualify because the ribbon is recycled (it was originally on a blouse!)

This was one of those cards where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Still, the end result was more or less exactly what I'd set out to achieve and as it's for my oldest friend it's worth it.

The tag & birthday word (from the Birthday Words set at Miss Kate Cuttables) were cut on my Eclips. The stamped flower was coloured with Promarkers, there's a close-up of it here (and I did re-do the dodgy petal before I sent it!):
