Flower Patch Happy Birthday

Today is another gorgeous Autumn day here in Melbourne - a bit chilly to start with but then the clouds cleared and we had " a bright sun shiny day" as the song goes :-)
With Sally (black Lab) having had two large molars (teeth) removed yesterday I am playing Nurse again. We didn't have a great night - a little bit of bleeding and she was obviously in pain for a while as the anaesthetic wore off. But having been through the mill with loads of leg surgery recently (bionic is how our lovely Vet refers to her!) she is a star patient and never really complains. By late morning she was keen to go the Park - pretty amazing!! 

And being Wednesday, it is time for another sketch from The Paper Craft Crew. The team have come up with a great variety of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over to check them out. So here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Yes, I know  - I am usually the last person to go for DSP when I can have some white space but here the green and gold DSP seems to sit ok don't you think? I was quite surprised too as it's not a paper I thought I'd use much :-)

Designer Series Paper: Gold Soiree Specialty
Inks: Versamark, Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a moment to check out all the varied cards the Team has created to inspire you at The Paper Craft Crew and I look forward to seeing your creation in the Gallery too!

Happy stamping until next time,
