Saturday Slot

I've had such a busy week ferrying people to appointments every day, apart from Thursday when I escaped to the hils of Derbyshire.  So I'm looking forward to a bit of a slow down over the weekend and hopefully into next week too!

So to kick start the weekend today's card is clean, simple and relaxed just as I intend to be.  I made it during one of the brief spells I was actually at home and used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. It's such a me sort of sketch and I really enjoyed chilling out in my craftroom stamping, cutting and sticking this card. 
I got to use loads of my favourites - stitched dies, stamped banners, pretty pinks - and also tried out a new stamp set that involves a double stamping of both the flowers and leaves.

And here's a closer look at the detail.  There is a die for the flowers and leaves, but as it's out of stock at the moment I hand cut them instead. Am thinking they look fine.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Bridal Bouquet, Diagonal Stripes & sentiment from Pretty Petals Plus
Inks: SU, melon mambo, pear pizzazz, old olive; Memento, angel pink, tuxedo black
Dies: Clearly Besotted, Tag Along; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles; lawn fawn, stitched party banners

Thanks for dropping by today.  Have a brilliant and relaxing weekend.
