Another from the forgotten treasure!

Hi there!
Are you having a good day?
Let's say that mine didn't go exactly to plan........I ended up helping daughter #2 with her two sick babies, so got no time to craft!
Yvie-Grace has just turned 11 months, and has been troubled with vomiting and the bummy-runnies for a couple of days, and now she's shared........her 4 year old brother, Finlay, now has the same thing, and their Mummy (Gillian) is looking exhausted....some of you will know how that feels!  They spent the day with me, until it was time to go pick up the two big boys, (Harrison is 10 and William is 7) I'm crossin' fingers 'n' toes that Yvie and Finlay haven't shared with Grandma!!
Now, you don't really want me to go into details of how my day ya?.........nope, didn't think so, lol.

So, not having had a chance to finish the card I started yesterday, I thought I would show the one I made last weekend, when I was trawlin' through all the half-forgotten goodies that were rescued from the's made from the same stuff that I used for the "You Rock" card, which was made on the same day.........

Again, the scrap of DP is from K & Co., as well as the sentiment........used a Martha Stewart border punch on the light green (it's actually plain copy paper that I painted with Perfect Pearls!)....

The base is ribbed kraft, and I cut the dark pink strip with my Fiskar's border punch, then lay the piece of DP across its length, and layered a hand-cut oval of white Bazzill (and ya can tell it's hand-cut from this close-up, lol)that I inked a little, on top of a K & Co. die-cut oval, which was also inked, then popped the sentiment tag on to crown it!

I layered a dark plum coloured Prima flower (on the bottom) with a light blue Heidi Grace one.....and topped them off with this cute embroidered one that was actually cut from a length of multi-coloured flowers that I found in Hobbycraft, where they stock the ribbons and lace.....a bit pricey BUT I got a LOT of flowers, all ready to be cut off as I need them!

Anyway, I hope I can definitely show you the birthday card for Olivia,'s her birthday on Sunday, so I HAVE to finish it, lol!

Take care....

Purple, Aqua, Pale green (hope this qualifies :D)
