Be my Bridesmaid?

A very big Hello today to all my friends and followers.
First of all I'm so sorry for not being around to comment much over the last week or so, first of all I went away on holiday to Minorca and didn't get back until late Monday night, then spent two days feeling so ill I spent the whole day in bed yesterday which isn't like me at all. I've also now got a huge engagement party to plan by Saturday for my daughter-so no pressure then. Needless to say my crafting and blogging have had to take a bit of a back seat. I'm hoping that after this weekend things might be able to get back to normal but from Monday I've been called for Jury service so goodness only knows what that'll mean time wise. Just lately my life is just one thing after another!!
My daughter asked me to make her a couple of Bridesmaid request cards ready for Saturday-apparently they are the new thing to give to your chosen bridesmaids??? The brief was, use cobalt blue and keep it as simple as possible-nothing fussy or fancy! Well I looked for ages for a suitable image and in the end I chose this one which I found on the internet. I cut it with an oval die and simply added layers in her chosen colour and a few little gems to match. The finished cards measure 9cms x 12.5 cms. I must admit I do find it hard to do such a CAS style, I kept wanting to add some pretty papers or some more embellishments but just had to stop myself. Sorry about the quality of the image but the weather was so bad I really struggled to get a clear picture:

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Take care and until next time.
