Splitting headache

Good evening everyone! My head is hurting, my knee is killing me, every joint in my hands are messing with me still I am posting today LoL It was a long time since I made a card just for fun of it and finally I got some time for it, or not but did it anyway. I really should have done a few exercises of accounting this evening, but I decided to go with card making instead. I have one of those rare nights hen all my boys are gone. The kids are with granddad and grandma and my partner is meeting his childhood friends tonight playing volleyball in one of his friends' pool. And since I have to be in school tomorrow, I had a great chance of getting the kids out of the house. LoL They can't be home alone tomorrow can they? I will watch an episod of Midsummer Murders when I am done here and then take an early night... Doesn't it sound good?

So here comes my card as well. I have had this image coloured up for years and obvious hasn't got around to use it before. Well, tonight I felt a surtain urgde to use it and paired it up with some Maja Design papers from the collection "Sofiero". Nice and soft colours.

Sorry about the photo. It started to rain and the sun was setting. I fix this tomorrow...
At least I got it up here. :) The yellow looking ribbon is actually natural white...

Didn't turn out one bit better, only darker. Too much light...

I used a few ribbons as decoration together with a single rose and some bling stones from stash. Also used the broad ribbon to tie a bow and get a little dimension to the card. I got a great set of dies from Annelie a while ago with three different small labels. They are perfect for a few of my sentiment stamps saying "congrats" in Swedish. Now this card design turned out perfect for the die so on it went. Maybe the card turned out a bit unbalanced but it was fun to make and that's the main thing today.

We have a new challenge up by the way over at Passion for Promarkers. The theme is Christmas in July. I so should have joined the gals for that one as I have yet to start my Christmas cards. Maybe I only make them for all the kids around us this year? Well, we'll see how it all turns out in the end.

Well, thanks for looking. See you soon again hopefully. Time to take care of my sore body and give it some rest.

Love n hugs
Marie

Hi Marie, sorry to hear that you are feeling rotten, not much fun is it? I sincerely hope you are feeling better today and that you enjoyed your evening on your own, I have my two grandsons due in a weeks time and I know Im going to be busy for sure. Also might have to rush upto Kent for a funeral a friend of mine has lost her hubby to cancer and I would like to go, but it does mean lots of travelling not my cup of tea. Anyway love your card is just stunning I love your image and your card design is gorgeous. Love those papers. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

That bouquet of daisies just jumps up and makes me want to smell them - they look so real and so very well done!! All of the other details - the background papers, the bow, and flower - all come together to make this card a thing of beauty!!
