Rosie D's Challenge 75 - Burgundy, Pink and Cream

Oh my what a bad blogger I'm becoming! Bear with me because it won't last for much longer hopefully!
Here is my entry for this fortnight's Rosie D's where the theme is burgundy Pink and cream. I used the hero Arts stamp Dogwood, and paper-pieced the flowers. The leaves were coloured with promarkers. I used micro beads for the flower centres and used a MS punch for the edge. The pink panels were run through my Swiss dots cuttlebug folder, adding a few punched retro flowers and leaves to finish.
I've been busy trying to sort things out at school as I'm moving classroom. I've been in there for five years so it's a bit like moving house. My laptop has died and cannot be repaired, so I need to replace it. It wasn't very old and has had lots of problems, so I'll be looking for another make. There are quite a few meals and parties coming up with work, and last week I made an appearance as Freddy Mercury in the school talent show (don't ask!). Hopefully by the beginning of August I'll be back to my usual self! Thanks for looking!

The card is gorgeous Sally. Love the colour combo and how you've decoupaged the image. Lovely!

Your Freddy Mercury made me smile and remember my Hubby's take off of Mick Jagger when he was about 18. If you saw him now the thought is hilarious!

I'll be in touch soon about that meet up in the hols.
