Flower Power

I'm not very happy with the photo of this card but I wanted to post something today. In RL I'm actually quite happy with it.

I have foxgloves self seeded around my garden, they look so elegant and eyecatching. On close inspection they are all varying shades of magenta to pale pink. No white ones this year although I have had them in the past.
This makes it sound like I have a lovely garden but the truth is it is a mess. We inherited lots of concrete, gravel and paving slabs and are still no nearer creating a beautiful garden that I dream of.. I suppose I should post a photo but I don't have one. May be I'll add one later.
I have this beautiful foxglove stamp so decided this would fit into a few challenges. The flowers are painted in H2O's with glamour dust in the centres for extra sparkle. The strip along the top is from a quilling flower cutout I had left over.
