What a beautiful card! I always love flowers on wood grain and your background is a favorite technique as it adds so much texture. Soft paper behind the lovely flower image, a touch of gold... perfect!

Hi Carol, am here with my Colour Crazy Craft Challenge hat on to say thanks for joining in with us this time with your super elegant card!

However, I'm stopping with no hat on to say thank you for continuing to comment on my blog even when I've pretty much failed to comment on your fabulous creations for ages! I'm afraid I always take a long to time to adjust to Autumn and what with a busy non-blogworld life I get well behind with commenting.

I will get back into some sort of routine once my internal clock re-sets itself and then you'll be fed up of seeing me I bet!

I just love this card, the flower is gorgeous and your layout is .... I cannot think of the correct word, I want say beautiful, but can you describe a layout as beautiful? Decision time, I am going to call it beautiful! Lovely use of colour and your shading is perfect.
