"Happy Easter"

Happy Easter Blog friends, hope you are all enjoying the break.  
Thank you for your visit today and for leaving a comment.  I read them all, I really appreciate that you take the time to leave one.
Weather here has been nice and sunny over the past couple of days.  Blooming freezing but at least we know that the sun is still up there...................
We did not do much today, Audrey was working Night Shift Saturday to Sunday.  She sleeps till lunch time, I felt that she just needed time to chill with John and the boys.  We are having our Easter Dinner during the week.

Today`s card is the result of a little "play time" I managed to get.  
Pendant orders all done packaged and ready to post on Tuesday. 

Base card 5x7 approx is pink card from my stash
White card embossed with SB Paisley embossing folder.  I inked the folder with Distress ink "Picked Raspberry".  After I inked it I rubbed it back lightly with a soft tissue.  I had done another piece without rubbing back and it was way too dark for me.
Cut a frame using SB Dies
Made up the flower using flower heads I had.  They were from Wild Orchid Crafts I think the are Cherry Blossom.  I had loads do not know why I had bought so many.  That`s a fair few used up anyway.
A few leaves and some twirled stems, I also pooped a few straight stems out the bottom.
A triple bow of American Seam Binding and greeting to finish.

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping by, I love to have you here.
