Back Home to Craft

I have been MIA for a few weeks now. First I went to visit my sister who lives about 4 hours from me outside Toowoomba and stopped by to have lunch with an old work mate. We stayed longer than we expected but hey anytime spent with family is GOOD. After coming home from there we had to repack our port (as it is called here in Q'land) suitcase to all others and headed south to the Sunshine Coast to celebrate a 90th surprise birthday gathering where we caught up with more friends we hadn't seen for a few years. Lots of fun and laughter for the week end and again stayed longer than expected. Now we are finally home and settled I now have time to get back to crafting. I so missed doing challenges so have been busy since I got back and have got a few done.
Below is the card I made for this special occasion.

The cs is metallic grey and topped with metallic apricot It is scored in the middle and topped with cb folder cut and placed over the top. Behind the poinsettia is the Cherry Lynn Italian Flourish die which has the Spellbinders Poinsettia added and finished off with a centre pearl to match the leaves. Spellbinder Tag is popped and a 90 cut out from CB alphabet and pearls either side. Apricot ribbon added to finish it off. 

I wll be back soon to add some cards I recently finished for a few challenges I would like to enter.
