Looking for Inspiration

Hello

It's been a few days since I posted anything ... DH is having fun in Spain golfing and I am coming down with a cold and feeling a little rough... 
 I had a big tidy up of my room yesterday and today I couldn't find my inspiration ... maybe it's because I don't feel so good or maybe I tossed it out with the rubbish

I thought I'd try and make a card for the challenge over at The Card Concept 
This is the photo inspiration


Well, I stared and stared at that photo and I just kept on coming back to that beautiful coral rose... I love that colour... So eventually that's where I went with this


Roses always say Love to me even though they aren't actual roses on that paper
Excuse the shadowing on my photo ... We've had a lot of rain with bright sunshine in between


I'm going for the Clean and Layered category with this one

I thought I'd enter this at AAA Cards too ... 


Does it count as a hole when it has a vellum backing? 

I hope you are enjoying your day ... 

Thanks for stopping by

p.s. instead of making cards I also did some decluttering in my craft room. Threw away a lot of stuff and prepapred some packages of patterned papers for others. Glad that I created some space and decreased my stash :)XXXXX
