Papers are First Edition Up, Up and Away. The ribbon is from stash, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The outer petals are Prima flower that I have coloured with Promarker, think it was Meadow Green. The centre flower is a Blue Gardenia but I have taken outer petals off and added a touch of Stickles. I tried different bellies in corners but they didn't look good and made the card look unbalanced. I think I kind of boxed myself into a corner with the layout and the patterned paper!!! LOL
What a strange week I have had! At weekend and beginning of week I felt very tired, then on Tuesday felt a bit better so I thought I would have day off relaxing and crafting! but popped into the garden and heard someone shouting for help !!! One of the neighbours had fallen quite badly while putting the bins out! Poor chap - his leg was bent back at a horrible angle, I think probably broken and I had to call ambulance and wait with him which took quite a while. When I got back inside the adrenaline wore off and my spine pain levels shot through the roof as I had been standing for so long !!! Also next day I had dental appointment so couldn't rest. Then there were the riots in Manchester the other night and my daughter was staying at her boyfriend's flat who lives in City Centre! So I was really worried but thankfully the riots didn't reach where they were.
Anyway, hope things have settled down now. All I want is a quiet life LOL!!!
