There's plenty of dimension in this card with the popped up split panel revealing the gorgeous Pacific Point polka dots behind, and the zingy Melon Mambo flower, all layered up and finished with a pop of Pumpkin Pie button!
I love the way Stampin' Up supplies embellishments in its gorgeous colours although I could have done with some delicious Melon Mambo bakers twine here... Never mind! shaving the edge off some Melon Membo card stock with my trimmer did the trick and it threads through the button like a dream!
Hmmm. You may have noticed how obsessed with this sentiment I am! It really isn't too difficult to fussy cut (it can't be otherwise I wouldn't keep doing it!) and I love the sense of movement it gives to a design. Well, that's the card done - but wait, there's just one more detail to add...
...this card was crying out for a coordinating envelope! No problem - envelopes are a doddle with the diagonal plate that fits neatly into my Simply Scored tool!

While we've been gearing up for a hot bank holiday Monday today, spare a thought for my daughter who has been working hard this weekend waitressing at a hotel. On Friday night she got in late and I asked her how it had gone. "Fine!" she replied. "Some old people were getting married!" I smiled. "How old were they?" I asked. "I suppose they were about my age!" (I turned 50 last year.) She shook her head. "Oh no, they were younger than you!" she said. The wicked child was just pulling my leg and it turned out that the happy couple were in their 70s. How lovely for them to find romance later on in life - may they have many happy years together!
See you tomorrow for something rather trendy (just to show there's a bit of a spark left in the old girl yet!)
