Pretty Peacock Challenge card


Good Morning Ladies, 

I had a very slow start yesterday as my legs were letting me know that they had done too much at the weekend,  although I physically did hardly anything,  just sitting can cause problems too though, Saturday we were sat on hard plastic chairs, when Paul helped me up at the end of the afternoon I really had to bite my tougue, it was that painful. But it wss worth it. 

Maria I am so excited to read that you got to swim in the sea, it's the best feeling isn't it?!! I hope you enjoy every minute if the rest of your holiday. XXX

Today's card started with me wanting to use the colour, it's called 'Pretty Peacock,  I have the ink and card stock, so the stamp set I used for the flourishes is called Flowering Flourishes, I stamped using Pretty Peacock ink, the embossing at the bottom was done using Sara Davies Vintage Lace Collection Lace Edger die, I used a border die for the ribbon and an Oval Punch for the sentiment. A few sparkle in the centre if the flourishes to finish the card. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day, I think the weather has forgotten it's supposed to be June! 

Sending love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx
