Flowers - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
There never seems to be enough hours in the day for everything I need to get done! I am on a weeks holiday off work & feel like I need to go back to work for a rest lol.

Jodie's cat Olly Purrs managed to slice his little leg open so I've been dashing back & forth to the vets with him & a tearful Jodie. Thankfully after an operation Olly Purrs is more concerned about his Buster collar he has to wear than his neatly stitched up leg so he is on the mend.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some gorgeous 
   goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
I didn't chose this challenge but I am pleased one of my teamies did as I love flowers & Prima products so this has been a really easy challenge theme & brand for me to feature :) 
I have used many Prima goodies on my card today & I am kicking myself for forgetting to use my new Prima Paper Clay on this card but with making my card between vets trips & comforting Jode I totally forgot!

I've discovered the fabulous new Prima Paintables paper pads and these are so lovely to use, & may well have converted me from being a non inky girl. I've used three different distress inks Stormy Sky, Broken China & Weathered Wood with a water brush to colour my Paintables papers, & of course have added some beautiful Prima flowers (all linked at the end of my post). I have also used some Prima White Texture Sand with my honeycomb stencil to add some texture, along with some pretty Prima lace.

The image I've used is Paisley Has A Prezzie by Stamping Bella & I'd added my favourite Simon Says Stamp butterfly dies, Leanna & Chrissy.  
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R21, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - B23, B21, B41 / W4, W2, W0/ C3, C1, C00, shoes - N7, N5, N3, present - BV11, BV01, BV000 / V09, V04, V22
