An open card and a welcome

Good morning Bloggers. I hope you are warmer where you are than I am here, it looks very dull outside!
Today I welcome Myrna, a new follower. Hi there Myrna, thank you for visiting and joining my followers :o)
On to my card for today which is an 8x8 that I made just for the pleasure of making it.

For once, I didn't cut and fold my own basecard. It is from a pack I bought yonks ago because I didn't fancy buying and cutting into A3!
The backing paper is from an 8x8 Kay&Co pad that I bought way back in my early crafting days. I thought it was time I started using it at last. The pearl paper that I cut the flowers/foliage from is also from the dim and distant past!
Dies used are Grand Nesties and Cheery Lyn. Punches used are McGill and Woodware, Gems were from my stash :o)
Jackie xx

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice message.
This card is lovely. I think blue is probably my favorite color.
