Addicted to Stamps & More - Theme Challenge

I hope everyone have had a super Christmas, that Santa was kind to you and maybe you have some new crafty bits your longing to play with. We at Addicted to Stamps and More have had a super break, I wish all my visitors a very happy New year. It is now time to get back to crafting and challenging, thank goodness, for I do enjoy these challenges and to visit your blogs, glad to get back to normal. 
We are starting 2013 with our Theme Challenge, amazing how quickly time goes this is # 5 - Nature, such a broad subject, we are bound to get a wide variety of entries. We are thrilled that we are being sponsored by

My card is my version of a beautiful card which was featured in a recent Craft Stamper magazine. I coloured the main white card and randomly stamped the swirls . Distressed further a piece of corrugated card. coloured white card with TH Distress inks Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey, distressed the edges. Stamped bees from a Sheena Douglass stamp set, a background stamp with small swirls, the main 
image of the plant is from Indigo Blu stamps. Tied with a piece of twine and a button. 
Some of the design team have used Bugaboo Digi Stamps, others have used a varied collection of sources.
Have fun, I look forward once again to paying you a visit over the next week.
