An easy one...... sooooo needed!

Hi Girls


Well,,,,,, I so much needed to do something easy..... I'm getting totally bogged down with doing fancy images and colouring - that I thought today, I would just put together something simple and straight out of my head.  Do any of you get that feeling every now and again?  And I've got to say, it did me good!

So what do you think?  There's not really much of a recipe to the card.... i used a nestability label (or is it impressibility?), an xcut punch for my flowers, a bit of ribbon from my stash, a MS border punch, and some dotty paper and bazzill cardstock for the back.  Some gems finished the flowers off, and I handwrote the sentiment......  that's the bit I'm unsure of...  is it good enough do ya think? 

The sun is shining here today, so the pruning shears are calling me to go and prune some shrubs....... It feels like spring!  Yes!!!!!!!!!! 

Hope you're all having a good day, and thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

Hugs
Christine xx
PS....... I've entered this for the Less Is More Challenge - Pastels and also (at a push from Netty) in the Pastels challenge at Incy Wincy Designs and also the Cupcakes Craft Challenge - Pink Polka Dots (think it fits that one well!! hehe)

  2. This is a very pretty card and although there is not a lot of 'white(pink)space' I reckon there's just enough!
    Thanks for joining us and we hope to see you again next week!

  3. Hi chrisine
    it's a lovely day here too, much milder too!
    Your card is very pretty, my fav colour!
    The simplicity is great, and can be forgiven for not having the required blank space

  15. This is gorgeous Christine. The sentiment is lovely, perfect just as it is. Loving the pink and the embossing on the flowers. You should enter this in the Incy Wincy challenge which is also pastels this week. It would fit right in. Great card. Annette xx (ps - wish I was in the garden too while it's nice, but will have to wait until the weekend when it is meant to be raining (typical!)
