Challenge 3 from Petal Lu......already!!

Hi everyone, can't believe it's 3 weeks today since I last blogged, where has that time gone??
Anyway lots of blogs to do over the next day or so, and lots to tell you, so I won't waffle on.....
Last week saw the start of the THIRD challenge from 
and just in case you haven't heard of Petal Lu, pop over to her website and checkout the amazing flowers that Lucinda makes....they're fabulous, and every scrap of them handcrafted!
This is a very simple card I made for my lovely friend Joan....she and husband Terence celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary last week, so I tried to keep to blue, as 45 years is Sapphire.
I'm struggling for crafty space at the moment, as most of my craft stuff is packed away ready for our move (hopefully)!, so I needed to keep it simple....

All card Stock is from 
Checkout their 'SPECIAL OFFER' for this week!

  4. It looks even better in the flesh so to speak. Thank you Barbara we loved it xxx

  5. The flowers are adorable, and the card is quite elegant. I especially loke the embossing and the die-cut (plus embossed) foliage. The way that you grouped them on the card created the perfect touch.
