Well... yes... just because I could!

I decided that I liked the sketch so much from the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog, that I wanted to make another card.

And here it is.


I'm not certain really which one of the two cards I've made, I prefer.. but I think it's this one.. because it's pastel colours which I like.. but then I like my roses card because I just love Cherry Cobbler.. oh decisions..


This is a close up of the flower. I did a bit of spotlighting technique here.. One thing I am hoping to cover in class shortly. It's a fab technique that looks quite complicated, but is in essence, really simple.

And the textured section? Well.... I was looking for some Bashful Blue, when I came across this piece that I'd embossed and cut an aperture out of. (Why????!!!!!) So, I layered it up onto the front of the image and I think it was just made for the job.

Righty.. I'm going to get a mosey onto sort out some other things I need to get done.

 A big 'To Do' list indeedy... Blimey.. where to start with it?

1. Sort out my camera lenses which are going out on loan for a few weeks..
2. Go and make some cheese on toast so my family don't feel neglected (!!)
3. Make sure DD is sorted for school tomorrow.
4. Get some Wedding Stationery samples made.
5. Cuddle the furbabies... In fact, I think this should be number 1.. lol.

Right.. I'm off to start with number 5... See you soon!!!
