Playing around with a new stamp

Hope you´re enjoying the week so far! We have a fab week with lots of sunshine and the first small spring flowers are showing. Love them! Makes my slow walks with crutches much more worthwhile. Every day there´s some new flowers popping up! My card is very much inspired by the flowers although the colours are much more summer inspired and I haven´t seen any butterflies yet. Night are still just above 0 degrees Celsius, but very soon...

Stamps: Penny Black, Inkido and Kortmakaren (it says Happy Birthday in Swedish)
Colours: Distress Inks, embossing powders ( I have even embossed the buttons with Rangers Cranberry, it´s perfect when you need a button but doesn´t have the needed colour)
Tools: Spellbinders Labels, flower punch from Panduro
Buttons and ric rac is from my stash.

Tomorrow I have my first real rehab training to look forward to... and I´m not looking forward to it. They´ll ask me to make impossible excercises and say it´s good for me, hehe. I´ll buy some lovely treat afterwards I think :)

Penny Black Saturday: buttons galore
Cupcake Craft Challenges: cildhood memories- grans lovely garden in the summer!

Thanks for any comments you may leave, they really brighten my days!
