Airing my puches

Yes I brought some punches out today and gave them an airing.
It is a while since I have been over to the Flower Challenge
Too many things been happening in my life this year.
However I have just the card to fit this challenge.

No it is not about to fall over its just the camera's fault it looks that way.
I used Sue Wilson's Bed of Roses EF and sponged the roses.
It is very delicate colouring but if you look carefully you will see 
the roses are a very soft lemon.
I had a yellow oval in my bit box so purposely mounted the 
sentiment at an angle over it but now I keep wanting to 
straighten it.
Then for a change I took out a couple of my punches to make the flowers
from scraps.

I am sharing this with:

Now for some news that I have waited so long to hear.
At long last I am going to become a Great Grand Mother.  YIPEE!!!!!!

You wont get the smile of my face now.

Thanks for dropping in.

  3. Ha, I thought your previous card was your snippets entry Margaret! That where your link took me but have now changed it to here :) A lovely card and I like the sentiment on the oval just as it is! Ages since I played with punches - time to put that right I think. The flowers are gorgeous! And I love the softly coloured embossing - so pretty.

    What great news about the new baby - you must be so excited! :)
