A card for fun...

Hi there, I've had a really bad day. I don't often blog these kind of days because I don't think that's what blogging is about but I was really upset by someone today. I'm afraid I cannot go into detail. I have now removed all mention of their company from my blog and will never again purchase any of their goods.
Now onto my card.
Sometimes it's nice just to make a card because you want to and not because you have to.
Image by Elizabeth Bell my favourite artist
papers from my stash
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts
Martha Stewart Punch

I enjoyed making this card I hope you enjoy it too.
