A card for no reason!

Good afternoon blogland,

Not sure I believe this myself, but I've just made a card for the fun of it - no DT, nobody to give it to, just for fun!  Not sure the last time I did that.

Not my usual style but I figure why not try something a bit different (and I stress a bit here) - love the colours, not sure about the flowers.

Let me know what you think.

Front shot:

The arty farty:

I used:

Digi sentiment

Memory Box - scalloped posies and fresh foilage
Nestie - for the senitment


Anything else?
Pearls from The Hobby House
Inked with a Distress Ink

Well that's about it folks - it's snowing and blooming cold and we're off to see the Headteacher at SHMbO's school again.  It's a follow up from a previous appt, just to see how things are now.

Hope everyone is OK, and see you soon,


And look - I'm entering a challenge!!  Can't remember the last time I did that!!
