I hope you are enjoying your weekend. It is much milder here in Melbourne today thankfully, after a hot day yesterday. I've been busy doing chores in the garden like dead-heading and trimming the edges of the lawn. Not exciting, but it is lovely to look at when it is done.
While I had the bits and peices on my craft desk a couple of days ago, I made a second card using the colours of this week's Merry Monday #44 Challenge. Here they are again to remind you:
I have a reprise of my circle tree card from 2011 and I think I like it more in these colours, than the original. It is fresher and brighter somehow, maybe it is the extra white space at the bottom. What do you think?
I have decorated the inside similiar to the last card, using the alternative Delicate Designs embossing folder.
