Rhododendron

 I've been working in a lovely house in Belfast all week and the garden there is full of beautiful rhododendrens, camelias and magnolias. So...while I was having my lunch I was also sketching! This Rhododendron image is one of the results.All of the images can be seen on A Passion for Stamps.
I have been entering the Less is More challenges lately and the theme this week is Acetate and there have been lots of gorgeous entries. The actual design for this card was inspired by the sample card there (although this one does not feature acetate!)
There are so many flowers coming into bloom at the moment that my mind is buzzing with ideas..
