A card I've managed to post....

At last, a card I've managed to post! I have been busy with my cardmaking lately but just not got round to posting on my blog, so look out for a few posts over the next few days with some pictures, especially as I'm on my Easter holidays now - yippee a whole 2 weeks off....

I've been asked to make a retirement card for a friend to give, the first image that sprung to mind was the 'Lazy Afternoon' stamp from Lili of the Valley, as the recipient of this card is sure to have time to do just what is shown in the picture!



Image is stamped in Cocoa Brown Memento ink, my favourite colour as its not so harsh as black. Papers are from a Basic Grey Archaic paper stack, ideal for men's cards. The sentiment is from 'Congrats' a Stampin' Up! set that has fab sentiments for all occasions. Ribbon, brads and buttons from stash.
I used the sketch from the challenge this week at Sketch Saturday.
Am off to enjoy the sun now, catch up soon.
