Lovely day for a bike ride!

At last a chance to do a card - I just don't seem to have had the time or the inclination to do any crafting this week what with one thing or the other, but as it's my nieces' birthday tomorrow and we haven't gone out anywhere today I managed to produce this. What started out as a simple idea in my head, ended up something completely different (nothing new there tho!!!).

I used my grand nestabilities scalloped circles to cut the base card and then another two slightly smaller with a complimentary pearlescent card using a mask (the name of which escapes me at the mo!) distressed inked it with antique linen.

The topper is a whimsy stamp, coloured with promarkers. The die cut flowers are made from a pack of Back to Basics 6x6 paper I bought from Wilkinsons recently and a few pearls added to glam it up a bit.

Hope you like it and leave me a comment (I can take it if you want to make constructive criticism - what would you have done differently - be interested to know)

Thanks for popping by. See you again shortly xxx
