Clean and simple

Hi everybody,   First of all I want to say Hi and Welcome to Sasha, Glenda, Anne and Sharon Joy.  I hope you are all keeping warm.  We have been very lucky here in Northern Ireland and have not had any snow so far.  I could not resist some stamps that I saw on Create and Craft recently - just basic flowers, sentiments etc. so I put together this clean and simple card - the kind of card that is very hands to have ready as it covers so many occasions.  Thank you for looking in.

I love what you have done here.

The embossed white background makes for such a clean but detailed look.

Gorgeous image .. I can see how you couldn't resist it.

You asked me about the cord I use on my cards. I buy it from the NEC when I go but you can buy it on line here

This is one of the most awesome card I have seen, you have done a stunning job. I love how you embossed the background. I can't tell it you colored the flowers or put flowers soft on them but they are so pretty and I love the die cut you used, your card is very pretty. I just love it. Great job...
