Seems like ages...

It really seems like ages since I have had time to craft! I have been looking after my lovely Mum whilst my brothers have been on holiday, and what with living at her house, taking care of my grandaughters,going to work, trying to keep on top of things in my own home, the odd family crisis and a funeral, I haven't had time to think let alone make a card! Things are back to more like normal now and I really enjoyed making this simple card. It looks quite different from this photo - the die cut dark card is actually chocolate brown , not black! and the gold card isn't bumpy (think thats the flash reflecting!) but you can get the idea. I am using it for these challenges:

  7. This is absolutely beautiful. I think chocolate is even more beautiful than the black it seems on the picture. I love your idea with the negative diecut, and the flower on top.
