Good afternoon ladies and I hope the sun is shinning where you are and you are busy creating, I was going to post this card this morning but decided to go shopping with my friend down the souk as I needed some retail therapy and my friend needed to get some presents to take home.

I just had to indulge in some shopping (as you do) and bought some roses for my card making and a few other things as the sales were on, love a sale, I was very extravagant and bought a new pair of specks and when I saw Versace in the sale I thought oh darn it I just have to have those so bang has gone my new Timmy distressing inks, stamps and MS punches I was saving for but I love my new specks and at 50% off you just can not say no and I didn’t lol plus it made me feel a whole lot better.

On to my card I created this for Simon Says Stamp Challenge on Paper Craft Planet and this time it is a colour challenge of dark brown, vanilla (cream), and teal. I not exactley happy with my distressing round the edges as it came out a bit smudged and then I dropped the ink pad on my rose after I had finished the card, ah well.
