Morning my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well? We had a little covering of snow on Saturday but that went on Sunday, since then it has been cold but no more snow as yet, now watch it come down like a!

(I had bad news this morning as my dear neighbour Joy passed away in hospital, God rest her soul, so this one is for her.)

Today's post was a bit of a quicky card I made, I could have done it better if I had raised the layers up but I wanted to keep it as flat as possible for posting, so of course I went and stuck some flowers on it!!!

I started with some Centura Pearl Ivory card for my base and layered it up with some Lilac Satin card that I had die cut the center with the Auvergne die, on top of this I put another layer of Ivory card that I had die cut using the  next size up of the Auvergne die. For the top layer I used the largest of the Auvergne dies to die cut the aperture and matted this on top. 

On two of the corners I added some flowers and fern leaves, in the opposite corners I added a Pearl.

I carefully stamped my sentiment in the middle  to finish the card.
