So Grateful

Such a hot weekend, I've spent all my days indoors tidying and crafting. I must get my craft room tidied up because I have a class at the end of the month, and the ladies will need room to get crafty too.

I wonder if it's stretching it to say that Raspberry Ripple is a shade of pink? Possibly, but the rest of the card is definitely pink - Strawberry Slush. The challenge at The Card Concept is 'Monochromatic Pink' and I think this card fits the Clean and Layered category. The label is from the Chalk Talk stamp set, the flowers are the lovely poppies from Simply Sketched, a Hostess stamp set. Don't the dahlia (button) embellishments look bright in the photo?

You probably can't see that I stamped the poppy image two extra times and cut portions of the flower to layer. I can see this as a Mother's Day card, so long as Mum loves pink!

Back to work at my regular job tomorrow! At least it has cooled down slightly.
Thanks for visiting my blog
