Fantastic Florals

Good afternoon everyone.  Well I have had a good day, did okay at my slimming class followed by a nice coffee with friends and back home to a lunch cooked by my wonderful husband and then a couple of hours crafting.  Must make the most of it as I am back at work tomorrow.  I have to admit it has been nice having a couple of extra crafting hours this week.
I don't know about you but I am always stuck for layouts so when all else fails I go to Paper Playful and see what they have for layouts etc.  That is where my layout came from. 

My Shopping List

 Fantastic floral stamps from chocolate barouque
Cosmic shimmer persian sea aurora embossing power
Couture creations encaustic embossing folder
Blue card
White Card
Versamark ink pad
Spellbinders 5x7 matting basics
Martha stewart border punch

Actually it is a very simple card to make, it took me longer to decide which stamps to use that it did to make it.  Isn't that often the way!

Hope you like it and do take care.

Thanks for stopping by.
