Peace and quiet at last....

Day off today, got the house to myself, the sun is shining, could it get any better?
Thought I would start off with a card - before I tackle the chores:-(



This card is for 2 challenges, Just Magnolia which is to use handmade flowers (I really must buy the larger retro flower punch....) and Basic Grey which is a sketch that is great to work with - I even decorated the inside of the card!
I coloured the images with Distress Inks, and layered the Tilda using silicon glue just to ensure I got the correct positioning, I wanted to cover the strawberries at the top of the box.
I used some of Chocolate Box card, scrunched it up and used a sanding block to reveal the pink core, not tried this before, quite pleased with how it turned out although most of it is hidden under the upper layers!
Punches are from SU! except the lil' retro flower which is an X-Cut one.

I feel a few more challenges coming on but ought to put my washing out now and get some coffee and toast... have a great day whatever you are doing, hope to be back later.
