Pretty Pink Roses

Good morning. What a miserable dull windy day it is here in Gloucestershire this morning. 
Typical as my garden furniture - that didn't get delivered last week - long story - but basically they wanted to deliver it at  
as they were running late 'cos the delivery van broke down -and they couldn't understand why I said thanks but no thanks!!! 
Anyway not to dwell on that onto my card I would like to share with you today :-)

I took my initial inspiration from the current challenge at LOTV 
 Here's my take on it:
I am just loving making shaped cards at the mo and have used some Grand Nesties - Plain & Scalloped Circles for this one.
The scrummy image is one of my favourite newer stamps - coloured with PM's as usual.
Design Paper - Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose' but this piece was a Craft Mag freebie
 Leaves - Spellbinders
 Seam Binding - Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

Here's a close up of the scrummy image

Other challenges that inspired me:
LOTV - Roses
Forever Friends -  A Round Card - my animal is the butterfly - hope that counts :-) 
Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum - One for the Girls
Crazy 4 Challenges - Create a Shaped Card
Mark's Finest Papers - A Shaped Card
Paper Creator's Crafts - All About Flowers
Card Patterns - Sketch #127

Thanks for popping by.

Before I go here's a picture of Pickle - Lilycat.
 She is a sleep on John's karate bag - do you think she is missing him too?

Have a fabulous day.

OMG Pickle-Lilycat is stunning, I do love tabbys. I've just spent the last half hour layed on the floor playing with Diddly, a few scratches later he's fallen asleep surrounded by his toys thank goodness, so I'm off to find the germolene, I love the smell of that stuff lol
