It's All About The Florals

Hi Folks
Sorry I have been off the radar for a few days but have had a busy weekend with no time for blogging.  Spent Saturday catching up on some jobs and doing a couple of DT projects.  Then on Saturday evening we went out for a meal to celebrate a friend's 65th birthday.  
On Sunday we travelled to Birmingham with a couple of friends.  Did some shopping in the afternoon and in the evening we had tickets to see Queen Extravaganza at the O2 Academy.  Queen Extravaganza are a band from America that were put together by Roger Taylor and Brian May from the original Queen band.  They wanted to form a band that would enable new and old fans of Queen to celebrate the music in a rock spectacular show.  We were not disappointed.  The band were fabulous and the lead singer even looked a little like a young Freddie Mercury and sounded so like him.  Highly recommended.

Anyway, enough about my weekend and onto today's card share.  This is another card that my sister requested.


I used images and papers from The Kew Floral Collection CD from Kraftyhands for this card.  The stepper card template is also on the CD.  I added some glitter to the topper for added sparkle.  The butterflies, roses and pearls are all from my stash (roses and pearls from Hobby House).  This is such a lovely CD with lots of gorgeous images.  I can see it getting lots of use.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you all think.
