 Hello All
Looks like we might have a lovely afternoon
After having some rain this morning it seems to be clearing
Hopefully it will stay for the rest of the day
My 2nd challenge today is
Challenge number 9
And here is my card

Didn't think it would be big enough for a card but just
Goes to show your cards can be any size
Cuttle bug Embossed folder
Coloured middle bits with Promarkers to add colour
This is a new thing for me using odds of Ribbons and sticking
Roses across the middle so simple to do and yet so effected
