Framed flower

Hi folks!  I have made this card for my friend Marie in Javea, Spain. I should have posted it by now, so unfortunately it will be a little late in getting there.  I started the flower in class last Saturday, so I do not know which company made it.  I bleached out the petals but didn't think they stood out enough, so I coloured them in with Pearl-Ex.  I cut out the yellow frame using nesties and I had used a stamp with bleach on the card.  I decided not to use that side, so why on earth I sprayed the wrong side with glue, I do not know.  I have used a new embossing folder and swiss dots on the background yellow card.
I have been playing whist this afternoon and as I type, my dear Quality Controller is making up a fab smelling lamb dish.  I did do the shopping for the ingredients though - so don't feel so bad for him.  I thought I may have doing some more food tasting this evening but I wasn't summoned.  Good!  I'll be making some more cards.  I have two wedding cards to produce and a 50th for a man.
I don't think it has stopped raining in my neck of the woods for days now.  My tomato plants need sunshine.  The nights will be drawing in soon and it's only 156 and 11 hours until Christmas.  May I be the first to wish you a Happy ...  No possibly not.

    Lamb is my favourite, I can almost smell it from here :)
