Hello dear friends and fellow bloggers.  Hope this finds you well but my love and thoughts if you are feeling under the weather.

My Card

A very CAS style card today.  It is for a man so I have kept it very simple and let the wonderful sentiment and the embossing do the talking. The sentiment is from Quietfire Designs, and the embossing folder is "Ornate Corner" from Die'sire Embossalicious.  The card stock I used is actually Papermania white canvas effect textured card but I changed the colour digitally with Pink Petticoat "Natural Neutrals - Mushroom".  I used SB Classic Squares large to cut the sentiment which was stamped with Memento  Cocoa Brown. The darker brown that I used to mat with SB Labels One  is from my bit box so not sure what it is from although I have a feeling it is Gemstones Jewelled Cardstock. A few Hobby House pearls finished it.

Well I must be off.  John has a hospital appointment at a different hospital and we have never been before so we need to leave a little earlier.

Take care and see you soon.
