Ironing happiness!

Hi Everyone, I have made my card for 2 challenges today, the first is the Outlawz sketch and the other is Dragon Lair - Women at work! looking through my files I found an image I haven't used in the 10 years I have had it. It's from PC Hugware and no longer available. It's by Laurie Furnell. I changed the colours of the image slightly to match the paper.

I followed the sketch laying it all out in PS, printed and layered and used die cut flowers and glitter glue from Dovecraft for the centres. I found the sentiment on the web, it's sooooooooo true LOL. although hubby does mostly - I do it sometimes!!!!

I notice the glitter glue is drooping, I had only just put it on, so managed to get it back in shape LOL.

I was initially worried about you when you mentioned the words IRONING and HAPPINESS together . . . but then I saw the card and concurred completely! Great composition on this card Faith and I love your pretty floral embellishments. xxx

What a fantastic image, Faith! I'm one of those weird people that doesn't mind ironing. I much prefer it to cleaning floors! But I do like to get to the bottom of it too! Love those glittery flower centers!
