365 Cards - #76

The challenge for today at 365 Cards was to "Keep the embellishments to the corners of the card" and they had to be in each corner of the card, not to leave any corner bare and only paper, stamped images or anything printed directly onto the cardstock was allowed in the middle of the card.  So here is my entry for today.  I really like this one.  I showed my husband and at the time I only had the 24-7 sentiment on it with the pics and he said what is the card for.  So I tried explaining it to him and then I went and showed it to my youngest daughter (20) and Ash said it's lovely Mum but what's it for.  Doh &%#*. . . so back to the stamping station I went and I chose 'thinking of you' from Trendy Trees to add to it as well. I really love the Always stamp set and in particular the beautiful bird image. It looks fantastic no matter what colour you stamp it in.  Well since I got it in early I think I might just make some stuff for the sheer pleasure of it.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
