MMM week 51-colour

Well it's Monday again and time for a new challenge at MMM. The continuing theme is FLORAL but this week we have a colour theme of White, Pink and Green with floral being the main image. Love these colours and my BIL gave me two lovely hanging baskets at the weekend which sort of gave me the idea for my card. Hope you like it :)


The card base is made from core'dinations card that I cut  into a flowerpot shape and turned the top back to create the rim. I punched the edge with an Anna Griffin punch and also the strip across the centre. The sentiment was stamped and punched out with an SU label punch. The flowers and leaves are clear stamps from Anna Griffin with little punched centres and pearls and a ribbon tag to pull the message out.













I made a stand for the card which is white with a green stamped vine on it although it looks green in the photo!

We've had a very busy few days as Charlie came to visit! It was Keir and Lara's 4th wedding anniversary and we baby sat for their first night out since his birth:) We went shopping, had afternoon tea in the courtyard of a lovely hotel, visited my SIL in Kent and had a fabulous lunch in Surrey after Keir had one of those driving experiences and the weather was fabulous!!
Hope this lovely weather continues although a little less humidity and a breeze would be nice! Never satisfied eh? :)

Pretty card Val. The coredinations card actually looks like velvet in the photo for some reason! The flowers are really pretty. How nice of Noel to give you the hanging baskets. Sounds like you had a good time with Keir' Lara and Charlie. Saw that Lara enjoyed her 'first date with Keir!!
