A quick man card

Hello my wonderful crafty pals, so pleased with your comments on my last card and here I am again with just another quick card, this is for our garden designing friend and I must admit to always being tempted to put flowers and watering cans etc on his card. However I am still in a - playing with my die cutters only mood. I got a bit confused, ok a bit more than usual as I cut my decorative labels 27 , the second largest one and then I couldn't work out how it was supposed to go with the ordinary labels 27 dies. This is the first ones I have bought as a pair. Never mind it may dawn on me at some point. I have also been die cutting for a friend  which I thoroughly enjoyed as it was some of my oldest dies, but that is all the crafting I have done lately. I think it is because I have been eating too much chocolate. A very warm welcome to my new crafty pals, so glad you have joined. Happy crafting and blogging to all. xx Flora

Paper and card - card is 19cm  square ,
backing paper from my special box,
Dies used – Go Kreate XXL Frilly #7 , Cheery Lynn Pinwheel Doily,
Spellbinders Labels 27 & Decorative Labels 27 .
