Good Evening. What a beautiful day it has been. Surprise and I had an almost dawn ride this morning, it was glorious. The bluebells are, at last, making an appearance together with the wild garlic. This afternoon wasn't quite so great with a visit to the dentist, however, nothing to be done so that's OK!!

Anyway, I am back to share the card that I made for the new challenge blog that is
As You Like It Challenge #1 - Favourite Die and/or Punch

A square base with lovely new papers from Joy! Crafts, the stamp is from a set called Shelves which I coloured with my beloved Promarkers ( I should get out more!!). I paper pieced the crockery using more papers from the pad and added the Just Because sentiment to finish it off.
 Now....why is the SB Floral Oval set my favourite?  Because it is just so versatile it and always seems to be my default die, whether I am backing an image or just using it to stamp a sentiment on to.

As for my style....not too fussy I guess, although not totally CAS. I LOVE paper and  tend to use flatter embellies these days too (due to the rising cost of postage) and in doing so let the papers showcase themselves!!

Thanks for visiting x

An early morning ride is the very best king to my mind Sarah, just you the horse and the birds, heaven. The bluebells are still very shy here and not a one in sight still.

And a very pretty card, it says cream teas to me.

I love your card. It's like a kind of fantasy nostalgia. I love the colours and patterns.
