Flowers ,Swirls and Lace

I could hear my Hubby cheering on team GB last night, didn't they do marvellous, as I lay in bed. A really bad head ache turned into a bad tummy too, a little better today ,but feeling a bit fragile. Still I've been pretty good health wise lately so it was about due.
My card, my attempt at some kind of shabby chic, not my strong point really ,but God loves a trier!The stamp I don't have any info on, I think Beryl sent a print of it awhile ago, she will probably tell me. Very pretty isn't it!
I've coloured with promarkers,adding a few dots of modge podge, trick gleaned from Brenda. I've distressed my papers,rasberry road digi and over stamped with a lace border stamp from personal impressions. I then added a piece of real lace , some roses from wild orchid, gold thread pieces from the ribbon box and some chipboard swirls, basic grey.The lady bird is a sticker from a Jolees Boutique set.

challenges entered:
Bunny Zoe Crafts : swirls and lace
Allsorts : recipe : 3 flowers, 2 stamps, 1 paper.
cupcake inspiration : pic ( sunflowers with ladybirds).

the weather here has been worse than ever,big storm yesterday, garages flooded and drains blocked, it was so humid ,think that started my headache. Sorry if I've not visited you, I will try to soon.
Enjoy your Sunday, hoping to nip up to Rosemerry Merry's craft shop later. janex

I've not gt round to using that stamp on a card yet - the only time I coloured it I wasn't happy with it and it went in the bin. Stamp company something beginning with X - or it may be Z. Got the link on my pc but I'm on the lappy at the moment - in the middle of the night - coz I'm awake and the internet is working - for now. Keeps going down just when I need it lately.
Fab card you've made with it anyway. Love the colours. Hope you are feeling better by now.
