All in blue

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

It sounds like our Indian Summer is about to end, according to the weather forecast. I have been enjoying it because it was beautifully sunny without the heat!
It was so lovely yesterday after lunch so I went to Elvaston Castle, my local country park. I haven't downloaded my photographs yet but if any of them are good enough to show then you may see a few here tomorrow.

On to my card for today, I have used that tattered flower again, I love it so I don't know why I neglected it for so long!

Basecard is my usual white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to just under 6x6.
My own stitched square, cut with my old Cricut, layered onto beautiful blue holographic card.
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigs diecut flower, sponged with gilding wax.
Memory Box diecut foliage.
All card used and large brad from my stash.
I will add sentiment when I know who I am giving it to, and maybe gems.
I really must use this flower more often :o)
Jackie xx
