This card I tried to keep as simple as possible. Hardly any embellishments, for me was really difficult.

Evening it is snowing again and nothing on tv. Oh what ashame just have to sit and play. This is what I came up with.

The die cuts are from Tim Holtz's  love stuck. Cut them on and distressed them as well. Grunge board at the top covered in gold dabber. Sticker had for a while and lace bit a scrap paper on the top and there you go . Downloaded image from Kenny K. Flowers are from wild orchid.
Hope you like it . Made lots of mess. Going to do more of my own backgrounds . Watch the snow from indoors.

Good afternoon just had a lovely morning at the local spa. Gold spa treatment bath and facial highly recommend me time.
At last finished my card for /liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge. Two papers and charm.
The papers come from clearing out my things. On the back I used a heart punch. Coloured the image in with promarker pens. Didn't want to add to much colour just a tiny hint. Took ages to get ribbon though the heart charm and tie into bow.
Hope it isn't to cold out there. Just got my new stamps from Lili of the Valley so going to play a bit more.
