Celebrate Flowers

 The latest challenge is up at The Flower Challenge...

I love using flowers on my cards and today I have a card inspired by Gina K and Jennifer McGuire and their partial die cut cards.

Here it is laying flat.  I used an Altenew stamp and die to make my focal image.  I did a partial die cutting of the flower.  The inside of the card was layered with purple card and I added the hot foiled sentiment (Pink Fresh Studio)  

Here is it standing up to give an idea of how it looks. 

Life in NZ is pottering along.... Omicron cases are increasing... today was the highest number of infections since March 2020 with just over 300 cases.. but hospitalisations are low - 12 with none in ICU.  At work we are working on strategies to ensure we can keep servicing our customers... we already have reduced the number who can be in the reception area to 3, with just one receptionist.  Hopefully we won't be hit too hard.
