Play Date Cafe & The Crop Stop

Hello everyone!  Today we had a beautiful sunny day, it's been lovely and warm, what's your weather like?

It's Thursday, which means it's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge.  My card is very simple this week because I've not been very well, both Natasha and I still have this virus and Ian has now caught it too!  Cardmaking is great therapy though, right?!  and I got to play with some yummy stamps from The Stamp Attic!  I am smothered in blue ink from this card that I made and life is good despite silly viruses trying to take over lol

These are the challenge colours from Sarah, isn't that bright blue gorgeous?!

My card uses Hero Arts stamps (Blossom Art for both flowers, Layered Flowers for the leaf, Envelope Pattern and Congrats for the sentiment.  All I did was add a pearl and voila, card made!
