Live Life Beautifully

Here is my card for the above Challenge at Inspirational. The blue looks brighter than navy, I think that is because of the colour adjusts I had to make to have the Kraft not appear flat. In reality it is semi navy!
Today I received a lovely parcel from a lovely lady who sponsored part of the Europe giveaway here for last month. Apart from the lovely gift of an embossing folder and WW stamp, I have to comment on the gorgeous presentation. All wonderfully wrapped and a stylish card as well. Made my heart sing with joy.
So in honour of Ruth, I used part of the emboss picture here in this card. After embossing I gave it a quick rub with a sanding block.
The rest is CS and a lovely sentiment from Bo Bunny from a piece of scrapbook paper.
The flowers are from stash as are the Card Candy
I am so pleased with the clean lines here.
