Poinsettia trio + a wonderful day out

Good morning Bloggers, I cannot believe it is a whole week since I posted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been so busy this week that card making was not an option :o( I was out with my daughter all day yesterday and the weather was very kind indeed with sunshine all the way. We set off early for Castleton and the farmer's market there and then we had a lovely walk round, with a stop to watch fudge being made and of course we had to buy some,  before heading for the Vale of Edale via Winnat's Pass where we stopped for a little while watching about 40 paragliders doing their thing. What a colourful spectacle that was too.  We stopped in the Vale of Edale for our picnic then headed off to village hop our very roundabout way home.
Anyhow, onto my card, which is the only one I have made in more than a week! I am beginning to feel deprived now :o)


I cut and folded white card to 6x6 then added a layer of paper I found in my scrap box. The 4 panels are blue pearlised card, "cuttlebugged" then matted onto white pearlised card. The poinsettias were cut on the Cricut and the centre of the large one was punched with McGill punch, the tiny stars are what is left after I punched a border with a Dovecraft punch. Flowers were sprayed with Crafters Companion glitterspray :o)
