Clearly besotted

Another beautiful afternoon in the west midlands. I have been resting pretty much most of today, trying to help my back heal. However it is much better than a week ago. So I managed to make a card using the fabulous Clearly besotted stamps. I love Stephanie's stamps & dies. This is to enter into the challenge at clearly besotted and the theme was a colour challenge.

And here is what I made...

I used brown, pink and green ( my green looks darker for some reason than in real life ). I added some vintage seam binding from Wild orchid crafts and its fab.
Well I do hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by & its always a pleasure to read your comments. Have a lovely evening.
