Kathleen said...

I am not good at flower arranging either but I think you have made a really good job of it. Lovely card.

Sorry about my entry to LIM, I probably didn't make myself clear enough on my entry. It was a digi download that came as is and I just printed and cut it out with a nestie. No colouring, no stamping, easy peasy. I loved the colours and the image and decided to go for it as a stand by for a quick and easy card especially as they had 33.3 per cent sale last weekend.
I am not normally a digi download fan but I loved this, mostly for the colours.
Thanks so much for your comments.

Very pretty!

Faye said...

Mandi, its gorgeous. Don't ever say you're not good at flower arranging because you are. This is so pretty.

Faith A said...

A beautiful card, if you don't like arranging flowers, I'd like to see what you do if you did like to, they are beautiful.

One of my neices went with BA on a "scared of flying trip" she thought it great, it made a difference to her. maybe something like that could help, advice from one who fly's only to get there, but hangs on to hubby's arm all the way :)

Romaine said...

So pretty! I love the flowers and embossed? Flourish! Beautiful!

Christine L said...

Hi Mandi... good to hear back from you... will you email me via my blog with your email addy? Would love to catch up properly!

Vicky Hayes said...

The flower arranging looks pretty good to me! I love that delicate leaf with those beautiful roses. Never mind the flying - enjoy the peace!

Timeless Expressions said...

I don't fly either... would much rather keep my feet on the ground! lol.

Beautiful card and your flower arranging is lovely! xx
