This is a similar design to the  one I made for my Birthday Blog post back in February but I got some lovely comments so decide to do something similar again I choose this shell pink it looks so pretty. Those Asters just look so stunning. Unfortunately as its such a dark day here today my photo is not a bright as I would have liked.
 
I'm going to Whitby this afternoon for my Gluten Free fish and  chip fix thought I'd go before the  school Easter hols start next week.
 
Thank you all for the  lovely comments you have left recently they are always so encouraging. Enjoy the rest of the week and make time to craft as I love your great posts.

Hello Carole. Thank you for the recent comments on my cards always appreciated. I hope you had a lovely afternoon out in Whitby yesterday. Such a pretty card. I really love that pretty shade of pink. The embossed white card is a nice touch. & I love the HB die cut & shape. I think you can get 8 x 8 scalloped cards at The Range in cream or white by Craft UK hope this helps.
Hugs Karen x
