Something a bit different...

Good morning bloggers...and my scheduled post...yes you guessed it at work again however not long til the weekend and I have Monday and Tuesday off as I might have a wee celebration in there aswell.  

I'm meeting friends on Saturday night for a drink or two or maybe three, not many more than that...I might even have a couple of glasses of prosecco in the afternoon.  Then on Sunday it's family day...out for more drinks and dinner...yummmmmm!!  Just aswell I'm off work on Monday and Tuesday to recover...phew....then it starts all over again next weekend as it's one of my friends turn to be more celebrating...yay!!  I don't get out much really and it's happening all at once!!

So back to the card...this is my DT card for Buttons for Brains.  I thought I would just use papers and dies just to show that you don't always need to colour an image to a get a great card....I am actually quite chuffed with this one as it is not something I would normally make....and flower arranging too...these flowers just happened to fit exactly as I wanted them to.

The papers are Basic Grey Moni Ami, I cut the little pennants and flags from my die-namics die.  I had the lace and ric rac in my stash and then the flowers have been cut with the layered rose die-namics die and the ryal rolled roses...the 2 smallest sizes, the the leaf is from Magnolia.  The tiny message is from the Prima Free Spirit set, then I finished with some teeny pearls and gems dotted around....oh and layered onto kraft card.

dies - die-namics royal rolled rose, layered rose
lace - stash
ric rac - stash
gems - stash
pearls - stash
