I'm not a huge fan of shaped cards as a rule, but I've found the Adorning Accents edgelits great for adding interesting shape with the minimum of fuss. The inside of the card is lined with the subtle text paper from the Patterns stack and my message can be written on the inside of the shaped section.
I stamped my flower head twice, cutting one out with my sharp paper snips and just the centre part of the other before stacking them up with dimensionals. The flower stalk is a strip of Always Artichoke card stock and the matching leaf was cut out using my 2 step bird punch. The sentiment, stamped along the line of the stalk, is from the Thank You Kindly set.

Although I have lots of projects scheduled, I'm in and out at the moment so do please forgive my lack of commenting. Over dinner yesterday I was telling my family about a trip to London I'd be making. "I'll be staying overnight," I told them, "and I'll see you sometime the next day." My youngest son immediately wanted to know WHAT time next day. "I don't really know," I said. "It depends what happens!" He nodded. "Oh I see, you might get caught in traffic!" I smiled. "Well, since I'll be taking the train, I don't think so!" He suddenly became quite animated. "Well, there was that time in Thomas the Tank Engine," he said, "where one of the trains was naughty and got bricked up in a siding!" Oh dear, British Rail might not be entirely reliable but I hadn't thought of that!
Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon,
