Easter Wishes

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope you’re having a lovely relaxing day.  We have been really lazy, we had a gorgeous roast beef dinner with all of the trimmings and have now settled down for a little bit of tv.

I made today’s card for the latest Retro Sketches challenge.  I’ve been hoping to play along with them each week but it hasn’t quite worked out that way. It’s such a fab ‘go-to’ sketch, I love it!
Here’s their fab sketch..
I nearly didn’t post this card because I don’t like that bottom leaf.  If I was doing this card again I would move it to the bottom left, diagonally opposite the other one, but anyway as someone I know would say, ‘it is what it is’ so I will just let it go even though it drives me nuts each time I look at it lol

Enjoy the rest of your day.  I hope you get to eat lots of chocolate and have some time to play too.

Have fun!

  2. Ha! I have a card that is driving me BONKERS right now. I can't seem to get the placement right and I've walked away from it twice already. I know what you mean when something is out of place and it really bugs you. I give those cards away first, just so I don't have to see it anymore. :)

    By the way, I think the placement is just fine and your card is beautiful.

  3. Gorgeou card Ruby, the paper is sooo pretty! And I don't think there's anything wrong with the leaf, it's a beautiful flower!

  4. Love this red on your flowers its just lovely. The little red pearls are just the right touch.

  5. I love your card...but I know how we are when we get something in our head about our own designs....your card is super fabulous.

  6. I love the color combo on this card. Just beautiful.

  7. These little details really annoy don't they but really it looks great Ruby, I love your PP choice :0)
