Just because I needed some girliness !!

Hello thanks for visiting today I hope you are well.

It has been a glorious autumn day here today, warm and sunny. It is also hubby's birthday so we enjoyed a family day in the forest - I will be blogging some pic's soon so pop back if you like.

Being out all day meant that my craft stash was left all alone and completely neglected so tonight I wanted to share with you a card that I made earlier in the week x

I have left this card without a sentiment which means that I can pop it into my card box and add the perfect sentiment (for pretty much any (girly) occasion) when I need it.

I used some new papers (Echo park - for the record) and lots of girly loveliness - hand stitching, a doily, flowers, pins, crinkle seam binding and yummy lace - just some of my fav things !!
It was actually very simple to put together although I always spend ages trying to get my blooms to look "just right" and never feel like I quite achieve it !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Dutch dare card challenges - Fab sketch (love this sketch - hope it's ok that I flipped it x)
Colour create - Colour combo - lime, aqua and white + texture
Pals paper arts - Lace
The stamp man challenge - Perfect pears/pairs (2 pins, 2 DP's, 2 trims, 2 teal rose buds, 2 cream roses, 2 leaves !!!)
Wags n whiskers - Lace

Thanks for visiting me today - leave a comment so I know you came and I can visit you too !
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
