Card making session!

Hello there!

I am feeling sorry for myself this morning as I seem to have developed a nasty cold in last 24 hours! Better to have it this week than next when I have my All Day class (2 places left by the way - 13th February)

We were supposed to have rehearsal last night but it got cancelled, I was so happy as I didnt want to drive there in the snow and it meant I could catch up with some stamping!
I decided to be a good girl and do my Jems Colour Challenge while I got the chance! Sarah P set us the task of using the following colours
Blush Blossom
Rose Red
Bravo Burgundy
Old Olive!
Quite hard I thought, until I got my Greenhouse Garden set out! Had to make a card for my Mum from the boys so decided I would combine the 2!
I made a trifold card from one piece of A4 which was Rose Red. The wording was stamped with the Just Perfect Alphabet and the Birthday Wishes is from Sincere Salutations. I added one of my usual flat bows in Bravo Burgundy

The two outer panels were Blush Blossom which I stamped all over with the flower in Blush Blossom and then Rose Red and added some extra flowers which I cut out and layered on with dimensionals.

You can just see the stamped Blush Blossom flowers on this picture.

Since first posting this my cold is getting worse, I cannot stop wiping my nose!! Arrrgghhh I hate being poorly!!!

See you tomorrow!
