Missed the boat with this one!

Evening all! This card was inspired by a challenge over at stampin chic a couple of weeks ago. However, me being me I missed it! The theme was to you use turquoise and yellow.

As soon as I saw the colour theme I knew which paper I was going to use! I adore this spotty paper, it is from the papermania retro floral pack. CS is coredinations. The image is from Elzybells, I've coloured it with my whispers and have added glitter to follow the bee's trail! Sentiment is from a Studio G mini clear set which I have paper pieced. Ribbon is from Dovecraft.

Well it was back to work for me today after 10 days off! No easy task believe me but it was made a lot easier when I found out my SU stash had arrived from Julie. I can't wait to have a play with my new stamp set that I got 'Simply Said'.

I hope that you are all well and enjoyed your BH weekend, plenty of time for crafting what with the rubbish weather!

Thanks for stoppping by!

Hugs, Vicky x
