Painted Blooms

How is your Bank holiday weekend going so far?  We had a lovely day out at the coast on Saturday, lovely walks and then met up with friends for a meal and a 60's show. The theatre we went to was beautiful. It was built in 1901 and had some wonderful old posters, chandeliers etc and the seating arrangements were 6 seats at a round table. Yesterday and today there is a big powerboat meeting so hubby is out volunteering on rescue for that.  I had a good day yesterday doing lots of a very hard jigsaw, thanks Mum. I did a bi of gardening, some ironing and a had a sort out of my wardrobes. Today I am planning lots of crafting.  Looking forward to the final part of Woman in White tonight.

So onto my card which is one of four I was commissioned to make for Papercrafter magazine.  They sent me lots of Dovercraft painted blooms materials and I had to mainly use those for my cards.   For this card I didn't add anything else.  The flowers and leaves were cut with dies from the Painted Bloom range.
