Today's card uses the pretty colours from Color Throwdown and the layout from Freshly Made Sketches. Initially I made the card to match the sizes on the sketch, but my CAS brain wanted me to shrink it down and I couldn't help myself preferring the smaller look.
The flower stamp is my favourite from Uniko Studio - it just ticks all the boxes for me. I stamped it onto patterned paper - and yes it was from my doodlebug pad again - then cut it out and mounted it onto pads for dimension.
I also put the background card through a cuttlebug embossing folder to give even more dimension and some texture. The pool coloured card has texture too and is left over from a holiday scrapbook album.
Finally I added an olive coloured pearl and my card was done.

So here we are in April already and I decided to make my 1st of the month journal a little more exciting by going out for the day. Turns out it was a great decision as the weather was amazing and Kedleston Hall and its grounds really beautiful.
Still ended the day with comfort television, but I'm always so impressed by the versatility and imagination of the sewers on the Sewing Bee.
Here's my pages:
And yes James did eat maltesers for breakfast!
Thanks for dropping by today. Have a great weekend.
