In complete contrast to last weekend's wintry weather, we have a gorgeous, sunny weekend in Melbourne. I have been out sweeping today as the leaves are well and truly coming down. My roses are enjoying their last hurrah for the season and I have a photo of one of my favourites at the end of the post.
Today, the card I have for you is based on this week's Freshly Made Sketch #30, shown below.
I have been wanting to use this doily stamp called 'Hello, Doily' (not currently available in Australia) and this sketch is a great opportunity. I have white embossed it on Island Indigo card stock and then matched it will the Pool Party floral from the 'Domestic Goddess' DSP because it is so fresh and sweet. The centre of the doily is a Calypso Coral flower (in the Joanne Leddy style) with a pearl centre, sprayed with some Champage shimmer mist. The gingham panel has been stamped with the PTI 'Background Basics: Gingham' stamp. I have made this into a Mother's Day card for my lovely mother-in-law Betty.

Almost forgot, here is a photo of one of my roses that is lovely at the moment. Lots of blooms to cut and bring inside. They start off as a pink/apricot and become more yellow as they age. They last really well in a vase.
