1st card of 2012

Oh my word!!!  How Cauuuuuuute!!! is this little lady.  I must admit to not knowing much about these beautiful stamps/images until I received this and another two from a dear friend as part of my Xmas gift.

She is a Bildmalarna stamp and I think she comes under the the Mimosa collection.  I've looked in the shop but can't find her.  My friend says she bought them in America so maybe it's an older one!!! 

Anyway I digress, I think she's a cute as a button.  I used my Pro markers and flex markers to colour her, adding little lilac gems in the centre of the flowers,  she has been stamped onto a circular nesti and mounted onto another two. I distressed the edges with TH old photo ink.  A full recipe for my card is below this post.

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:
