Long time no blog!

Hello everyone! 
Well it really is long time no blog!.  Unfortunately my health has continued to deteriorate and I have felt pretty low for several months. Because of this I have neglected things that I have loved to do such as my blog, but now I have made a promise to myself that I will post more often in the hopes that tis will encourage me to craft a bit more and therefore lift my mood :)
So enough feeling sorry for myself and on with the craft! It is the 1st of March and so it is time for a new challenge over at my challenge blog , and this month it is Anything Goes.

I have made a card using a beautiful Darkroom Door Anemonewhich I have stamped and embossed a luscious chocolate brown (it is actually called Bak and it is a WOW powder but it looks good enough to eat!)
On the corners I have used frantage embossing powder in shabby pink. For the background I used a Kanban backing paper and then took a piece of Kraft card and embossed an Anna Griffin background stamp (which I have had forever!) in white detail powder - I just love this white on kraft effect and the detail in the flowers just doesn't show up in the photos. I added some pink organza ribbon from my stash, a little Baker's twine bow and a couple of little stick pins to finish off.
 I hope you like it and I promise to try to be back really soon
Thanks for reading
