Simple Sunday card :)

Been spending some time stamping this weekend! I really like this card - it's nice and simple! Patterned paper from 7 gypsies and stamp by Stampendous! Then I used my Prismacolor pencils + Gamsol to add some color. I think that the blue around the edge of the image makes it look a lot more realistic; better than having the flower floating on the cardstock. I used pop dots to make the whole panel stand out from the card front, and also on a second image of the flower :)

We have had a whole weekend of doing.....nothing much! Iain always takes a couple of days to recover from jetlag after a S. America trip, and Jamie isn't feeling too hot today, so we are taking it easy. Tomorrow will be busier - we have the neighbors coming round for drinks and appetizers!

Have a great long weekend, everyone!
