Going round in circles

Happy New Year everyone!!

I'm so sorry I've been gone for so long but my holidays just seemed to become extended and I spent last weekend in Glasgow but I've finally got my finger out and started creating again.

As you can see this is a very different card for me but I wanted to try something new. I apologise for the sombre tone of a sympathy card but you could use any sentiment in this layout.

The papers are all BasicGrey, Pheobe range.
Nestabilities and circle punches used alot!!
Prima flowers.
Buttons from a craft fair and brown linen thread.
Apple organdy by Creative Impressions.
STAMPS ~ Climbing floral background is by CHF and stamped in the lime section from Brilliance peacock pad.
"With Sympathy" is by CHF from Kim Hughes' Silhouette Blooms set.

I can't believe I haven't coloured anything or added glitter or bling - AMAZING!! I guess my next card will need some sparkle or I'll be having withdrawal symptoms.
