Sorry I forgot!

I was out at our local craft club last night when I looked across the table and remembered that I had forgotten my friend Sue's birthday. Oh no, it was on the 9th January, so I'm only 3 weeks late! Luckily, we were crafting 3D water distressed flowers and so I was determined to make a card today using my flower, especially for Sue.
I scouted around and found a perfect sketch to follow (I'm starting to become an addict to sketches!) at Addicted To Stamps and More

I've used two different papers, some decorative washi tape and some twine, along with a die cut tag shape onto which I watermark stamped a (very) suitable sentiment! I have watermark stamped some more flowers inside, masking off an area to write, but as I'm already pushing my luck photographing this card late at night I didn't think this subtle stamping would show up well enough, Enough babbling, here's my card and a close up of the flower

I will give it to my friend when I see her tomorrow at our second crafting club evening(I know, two in one week!)

  5. I have seen this card IRL and it is just as stunning - if not more. Love the colours - especially the brad - it matches perfectly.
