A quick and uncomplicated card today based on a card seen in a Stampin' Up stampin' techniques booklet.
The base card measures 4.5" x 5.5" - a good size for going through the mail, especially as the embellishments aren't too bulky.
All it took to decorate was a snippet of DP big enough to cut 3 x 1.25" strips, some really nice grosgrain ribbon wrapped round and the topper. The topper was made by stamping this really useful Banana Frog stamp using Versamark and embossing with gold EP, then trimmed and adhered to a scalloped circle of co-ordinating green card.
The back has a strip of the DP too - can't leave it without decoration :)

We have had the most awful weather here - almost all four seasons in one day, I think. Rainstorms this morning caused flooding on the roads ... so much so that the fire brigade turned us back on the road out of town ... a sudden change to our shopping plans! Then the sun came out and it was quite pleasant this afternoon ... what will this evening bring, I wonder. Oh,oh, I've just got my answer, it's raining again now :(
Oops, time to go - time flies when I'm crafting :) Time to think about preparing dinner.
