Simply Create Card Day 2

Afternoon everyone, hope it's a lovely day where you are. It's absolutely lovely here saying that I started my post about two hours ago and took off to see a friend and now it's gone dull and breezy. Nevermind looks like tomorrows going to be even bettergoing by the forecast, great, makes you feel so much better I think! Went to Forres yesterday with Kelly, she was needing cake making stuff from Bakery there and what did I do!! Was only looking you understand but came out of shop with my outfit for the Wedding. Early days yet but find shopping for clothes such hard work and wasn't looking forward to seeing all this over the top Mother of the Bride/Groom outfits. Not me Very CHIC me thinks, nothing loud! Was not the colour I was going for atall but goes with my HAIR!!!! Finally given the dye bottle the heave and going white gracefully.... Hat an all, never worn a hat in my life apart from a toorie round the farm but really liked it and if I say so myself was looking good! Well someone has to!!!!  Gosh, the hat cost an arm and a leg. But the outfit wouldn't of been right without it so it had to be! 
My card today is my second creation for Simply Create Alford.again using the Hero Arts 'Dots & Flowers'.  This time I used linen card, inked edges with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, layered with  embossed stitch Cuttlebug folder. Stamped card with Antique Linen and embossed with clear embossing powder and inked over with the Antique Linen. Did the same for the flower, cut out and fixed with pads. A clean card for me, something I don't do often but I like!

Gorgeous card Carol, my favourite of your cards from this stamp set.

Congrats on getting your outfit. I eventually got my outfit for Catriona's wedding about 2 weeks before the wedding!! I certainly didn't want any fancy mother of the bride outfit either lol!
