Same but different....

We have had a lovely day today.  We met up with an old friend  and went strawberry picking.  The sun was shining and it was great.  We had to be careful not to pick too many as we are going away and don't want them going to waste!  Not that that could happen really with my two piglets!!!!!

I made the congratulations card for my friend last night and its a variation on something I made last year for another friends wedding ( and before I had the blog and took photos of things I made!).

Its a bouquet made by drawing a faint circle and filling it in by stamping the flower and then cuttiing it out.  I then cut out some individually stamped flowers and added them to the circle of flowers to give it some dimension.  (When I made the wedding card the bouquet was bigger and I  added some pearls to the individual flowers)
The flower and sentiment stamp is from SU and the ink was Old Olive also by SU.  The gingham paper was from a paper stack by Serif (Picnic in the Park)

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges;

Try it on Tuesday - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - #53 Anything Goes

I have just looked at the weather forecast for Majorca at the temperature at the moment is in the 30's.....oh my, I hope it cools down slightly before next week (only a little bit though)

Thanks for stopping by
Take care xxx
