Valentine's Card

My apologies at the lack of posts recently. I've booked a very short notice holiday and have been busy trying to fulfil my commitments before I go. This was the only card I had time to make last week and as it was commissioned for someone who might visit my blog I couldn't show it until today. It's my first attempt at a circular easel card. I could really have done with it being a little bigger but that's the size of the dies I had. I've used SU vanilla cardstock and blush blossom ink. (Tried it first in kraft but ended up not liking it.) Pleased with the delicate colouring on this one though. Marianne Designs poinsettia die for the flower and lots of texture with various embossing folders.

I've got one post scheduled for the 25th, other than that see you in around two weeks' time.
