As Simple As It Gets!

Hi there, I had a Birthday at the beginning of the week and have been thoroughly spoilt one way or another!
My Hubbie took me craft shopping before the event and I chose a couple of new Xcut dies amongst my goodies, One of which I used here to create my card blank using one of my other favourites to remove the aperture.
The gorgeous Floral Delights image was coloured oh so quickly using one of my other treats Polychromo pencils. I couldn't believe how much quicker it was than using my beloved Copics, need to get practising though! 

Sorry for the funny colour of the photos, we don't seem to have had proper daylight for days!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
MIM112, Anything goes,
TTCRD, Anything goes,
CIP, Anything goes,
OSAAT136, Digi,
Paperplayers 118, Frames.
Thanks for stopping by,

What a lovely frame you've used here...just gorgeous! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week! Also, have you ever tried adjusting your photos with your photo editing program? Mine has a neutral color picker and it adjusts the colors to a more natural hue.
