New labels +a card + a photograph

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well with you. I went to the doctor's early yesterday for my annual blood tests and an ecg because my blood pressure is up! Well, I am very happy to report that the old ticker is in tiptop, A1 condition so I should be good for at least a few more years :o)
Last night I was playing with PSP11 and came up with these labels for my work. Are they too obtrusive, or should I fade them out more?
Here is another camellia card, made for no particular reason other than I wanted to play!

Own photograph of course, feathered in PSP and text added. Foliage is a Marianne diecut and basecard is linen cut and folded to 5x7

Have you ever seen a hen up a tree?  Well it was a bush really! I took this at Byrkley Park on Sunday, I was in the right place at the right time because a couple of minutes later he/she got down from ther e.
The scroll used in my labels was created by my very good friend PatEssex (DC) and I used Papyrus font, one of my favourites :o)
Jackie xx

Glad your tests were OK Jackie, I always dread mine every three month, they always seem to find I need more pills for something.

Chicken up a tree, well yes, one of our cockerels took to preferring one the the oak trees to any of the chicken houses. As expected one night he fell of that perch and Reynard was waiting and that was the end of him.

Then there was the one who always slept in the stable on one of the horses backs, that came to an abrupt end one night as well - horses hooves are unforgiving.

Sorry to bore you with tales of the Fen, I came here to look at your card which is as always very pretty.
