Turquoise Rudbeckias

 Well, you won't need your sunglasses for this card (unlike yesterday's cards!) but I just had to use one of my favourite stamps from the Rudbeckia  pack from the Pick of the Bunch collection by Tonic Studios in my favourite colour - turquoise!
Just in case you hadn't noticed, when I was drawing these stamp sets I included some little garden creatures such as butterflies, ladybirds, caterpillers, snails, dragonflies, moths and bees but also some foliage. Sometimes the leaves are from the flowers in the pack and others have leaves such as ivy which go really well with the flowers.
So...the little stamp which I've used in turquoise on the background of this card is one of the tiny foliage stamps also in the Rudbeckia pack. The moth with al the glitter at the top of the oval is another one from the same pack.
I've mounted the main image on an oval of white card made with the Tonic Studios Oval Shape Mate  and the decorative edge to the card was made using the Tonic Studios Border System and Edger punch 5.

This is one of the cards which I've sent over to Create and Craft for the show on Sunday at 5.00pm
