Coming Up Roses

Hello and welcome! It's been a while since I'ved posted - I hope to dip in and out a little more often. Thank-you to the lovely people who have signed up recently to follow despite my absence.



It looks rather grey outside (in Dublin anyway) - I hope the Springlike hues in my card will warm everyone's day.

I've used papers by Maja Design that I tore and layered. Flowers are from my stash. Surrounding dots were done using Waco pearl pen.

Thank-you for stopping by - I hope to catch up with visits in coming days.
