Flowers and Buttons

Morning all, I am sneaking in a post before I get sidetracked by my gardening. 
Only two gardens left to mulch now and the yard is starting to look half decent again.
I had another tree chopped down on Tuesday as it was under the service wire to the house and has always worried me.  Had talked to my hubby about it and thought he agreed with the plans.  When he got home he said 'I didn't think you were going to cut it that short'. lol is ground level.  Oh well it won't have the worry of branches landing on the service wire in future.

My card today I started with my blank white card then a layer of Stampin Up Cameo Coral which I have pin pricked around the edge.  I then added the white die I cut with my Spellbinders Label 18.  Stamped some stems on to the die and then added these lovely Hydrangea Flowers from Pizzazz Aplenty and topped them with matching buttons.  Found these wonderful dragonfly shapes I had punched at some time.  They have a little glitter on them that doesn't show in the photo.  Finished the card with the raised sentiment created with two stamps from my Stampin Up collection.  Sorry being lazy and not walking to the cupboard to find out the name. :-)

I hope you all have wonderful days and achieve at least half of your list of things to do today.
I think we always put too much on that list.
