Floral 40th

Just dropping by tonight with a quick card that I made for a friend who needed
a card for a girl in her office.
I didn't want too much detail but wanted it to be 'pretty'.
I have had these large number dies for along time and love using them as
 they are such a statement on a card.

Life is a bit hectic at the moment so do apologise for not being 'chatty'!

I'd like to enter

Thank you Wreath

Just dropping by today with my card for

As soon as I saw this challenge an autumnal coloured wreath jumped to mind.
I took one of the flowers from the Flower Arrangement set stamped it in various colours in a circle, added a bow made out of my oldie but goldie Stampin' Up Old Olive ribbon and finished it off with a 
Clearly Besotted sentiment and Hobby House pearls.

Thank you for stopping by
