Flowers for a Friend

Hello everyone! And a warm welcome to my new followers.
Just a reminder that there is a sale on at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop  with lots of lovely bargains.
Hope you all had a great Christmas!! Ours wasn't a happy one, I was ill and we had some very bad news about a very tragic event that I cannot discuss right now.  It effected my will to create, hence my lack of posting...but life must go on, and so yesterday, I managed to muster up some mojo and I created a bright and cheerful card and a small gift box for a friends birthday...
I used Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals for my card. I layered and embossed with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities 'Venetian' folder.  I then added the very pretty 'Apothecary' label from Stampin Up, which I coloured with PM's.  My pretty flowers and ribbon are from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  They were white and I coloured them with PM's to match my card.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and lovely comments throughout this year, and to wish you all...
A Very Healthy and Happy New Year!!
Thank you for stopping by
Love, Sasha xx

Hi Sasha - the Apothecary Art stamp is a beautiful focal point on this gorgeous card. Love the colours and flowers, and as always, you have worked your magic with the dies!

I am so very sorry to hear that you had sad news at Christmastime, and that you were also unwell. It sounds as if the bug you had is still lurking around - I do hope things improve very soon.
