Wildflower beauty

I love Hero Art's new Artists Proofs stamps and this dandelion is from their Wildflowers Garden cling set. I put the ribbon on but it covered the leaf so I altered it slightly by stamping it again, cutting out the leaf and attaching it again but this time higher up. I attached it with a foam pad to lift it up a bit. The dots in the background are stamped with Stampin Up's Whisper White pigment ink which I love because it works well enough on it's own without having to emboss it using white embossing powder. I added Rangers glossy accents to the centre of the flower and it reminds me a bit of a fried egg now!

Well I love the colours of this card because oranges and yellows always cheer me up. Not that I need cheering up because I'm feeling very chirpy.

What also cheers me is seeing the beauty of a dandelion seed head. They are truly magical and although a lot of people dismiss dandelions as weeds, I love them. It's nice to see a bit of beauty growing out of concrete.
What is the aroma I can smell today? Well today Mr or Mrs Patak's Jalfrezi sauce is wafting through my flat and it is a gorgeous smell of warm coconut, mmm, yummy! So really when I say I've done a bit of cooking, I have simply opened the jar and poured it over browned chicken thighs and softened peppers. I think Patak's sauces are the best so far, so I recommend them!

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by ...
