Simple Card

That was the request from a work colleague today. She wanted something quite plain & simple with white flowers for her daughter's birthday. At least I can share this with you!
I came home & made it straight away. I didn't feel daunted as I have done for the last few days.
I still have one to make for another colleague, but I am happy that I could make this.

I have 3 Art Journal cards to make now & I think two are going to be so simple. I have a desire for small. The space isn't too hard to fill. I really hope I can go back to a 12" page soon as I have a great idea to do with the book extract. I just can't get it to work for me!! Perhaps reading all weekend has taken my mind off everything. I am still tired but feeling great to have no pain in my mouth & the sniffles are going slowly.

Very pretty card! Thanks for posting on my blog. I am glad that you got enough of a raise to cover that increase in rent ... isn't life all about the ebb and flow?! WOW!

Very lovely card! And *cheer* you can do it! Ps. ever tried lettersize? It's lovely, I love to alternate the sizes - just take the plunge and do so if you haven't before. It'll be a bit unusual at start but try to scrap 2-3-4 before deciding whete ryou like it or not :)

Paula that is such a pretty card - the little bouquet is beautiful and works so well with that shade of pink
