Sun Shades Needed...

Hi All!
 ...no for for the sunshine, beautiful though it is, but for my card. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

     On the BBC Breakfast news on, I think last thursday, they did an article about wedding cakes. As soon as I saw this one (left) a little seed was planted in my mind.
I was sure I had bought some really bright paper years ago and put it away thinking I`d probably never use it and sure enough there it was gathering dust at the bottom of a drawer.
It was one of those moments (they don`t happen to me very often) when you can`t get an idea out of your head and I spent a lot of time when I should have been concentrating on work, thinking about how I was going to put these colours together.
Well here is the finished card.
Not everyones cup of tea I`m sure but actually I quite like it.

Apologies for the piccy of the cake but I couldn`t find a photo, only a video on the BBC website so helpful daughter Angie took a photo of my computer with her phone.
What would we do without technology eh?




Thats it from me for now, just popped in to show off lol.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
