Something pretty after a rubbish day...

How was your Sunday? Mine has been rather crap. I firstly dropped my phone in my cuppa and it died. The iron then blew up and I found out my nan has had yet another fall and was in A&E. She is thankfully ok, bruised but nothing broken this time. So after all that 'urgh' I thought I'd while away some time making something for me, well, the card isn't for me but making it was a bit like therapy after all the crap ;-) x

I have used a stamp I bought weeks and weeks ago and never used. I adore this image, not sure I've done her justice but think she looks ok. I love the brown and green colourway, so soft and delicate. I added a border with a new c'Art-us border punch I won from Cuddly Buddly (thank you, it's gorgeous) and included lots of texture, I love texture on cards...
