Stampin' Up spring card

Not managed much crafting since Thursday, been busy with housework, gardening, drinking with friends and recovering!! Thought I was being good yesterday plastering on factor 30 to do some gardening, but missed the back of my shoulders/top of my arms, boy are they sore today!

Here is the card I made for my SU! granny, who has recently had a short stay in hospital.

I had a play with the gorgeous Washington Apple papers, the oval, scalloped oval and scalloped circle punches, to create the flower. This is a great card to make using scraps of paper, but not having scraps of this DSP yet I had to break into brand new whole sheets!!!
The flower was mounted onto some Bashful Blue cardstock which had been background stamped with Versamark and the Polka Dot background stamp. The centre of the flower was stamped with Versamark and one of the Polka Dot Punch stamps that were free in a recent promotion.

Am off to the shops now, got to get some new clothes, last years cropped trousers are all too big! May manage to fit in some craft shopping too as there is a Hobbycraft where we are going!

Have a great Bank Holiday whatever you are doing, looks like the sun is trying to come out.
