Floral Fancy

Quickie post as it's a big night tonight (LOL) - am off to the Hilton Hotel in the middle of the country for a National Dinner and Presentation - and as we're staying overnight I may partake of a couple of glasses of vino...got to help my teamies celebrate their National win haven't I? Be rude not to!! LOL
So - and I kid you not - I have bought a DRESS especially for the occasion and HIGH HEELS!! Me in a DRESS??????? 
Am bothered now 'cos -
1. None of my friends will recognise me in a fancy frock (cos my jeans and trousers are my fave clothes)
2. I'm scared I will fall off my high heels (especially with the vino) as it's been about 10 years since I wore anything that remotely resembles 'dressy up' shoes!!
If I am brave enough (or have enough to drink so I don't care...) I just MAY allow myself to be photographed to share with you......... only MAY mind you so don't be getting your hopes up!!

Enough waffling - here's the card - my fave white linen textured cardstock used throughout and a CAS design. (Pic not brilliant as the light is pretty poor!)

The image is from Kanban, stamped in Versafine and coloured with a mixture of watercolours and promarkers.

I opted for bright retro style colours as I thought they fitted with the stamp design.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Layered the image onto green Bazzil then onto white, wrapped some green and white striped ribbon round and simply knotted at the front.
