Well I hope you're all having the beautiful weather that we are having here in west yorkshire, hope it lasts a bit longer, hate the cold and wet. This card is for a friends birthday, very simple but lots of matting and layering.

                                                                     I have used Bazzil Basics cardstock, Memory Box hollyhock stem die, Spellbinder oval dies, Stamping Up border punch, MS leaf punch, and a cream rose from Wild Orchid, petals edged with brown ink
