All Occasion Card

A simple but stylish card in my favourite red, white and black. The base card is opalescent white - 5" square. I folded back the front and lined the back with a gorgeous black and white flower spray paper by Papermania. The flowers were cut from George at 3", one in black, and then a red one in silhouette. Stuck them on the front, and added a few jewels.

My weekend, as predicted was totally craft free, apart from a cardmaking session with Kiki - we cut out a monkey, giraffe and a chicken from Animal Kingdom, she loved them. She was as good as gold all weekend - I slept in her bedroom and on Saturday morning I could hear this little voice saying 'it looks a bit morningy to me......................' she was quite right, it was 'morningy' but a lot earlier than I usually open my eyes. When faced with a bright eyed, energetic three year old, there is no alternative, you get up! Pure joy, I am missing her today, so threw myself into playing with paper.

so lovely. Love the colour combo too. I also have a 3 year old that wakes up BEFORE the crack of dawn... way to early but also so sweet.
