Thinking of you with CTMH

Another full day, left here early this morning with my youngest daughter and my future DIL to go look at some dresses to wear to her wedding. I bought a lovely beaded one and of course (and luckily) it's in my favourite colour purple!!! My daughter thought it looked to old for me when it was hanging in the shop but changed her mind when I tried it on. It's been horrible weather here today, very hot and muggy and not ideal for putting clothes on and off half a dozen times trying different outfits. I also bought a bargain dress, not quite as dressy but will still be worn in Vietnam for the meeting of Emma's parents - it was marked down from $100 to only $15!!! Love it.
I was about an hour late for craft this afternoon and so didn't get much done. Tea out with friends and then home here to watch tv and try and stay cool.
I have done another case of a card which I saw in an old magazine, slight variation to the layout and used different dies etc.
Here it is.....

Front of card... I tried scanning but because things are popped out on the front it was all fuzzy so I've tried taking a photo. It's turned out marginally better but it's not blurry!

Inside of card - this one's scanned 
Maroon cardstock from stash for the basecard
White card from stash
Scraps of green card 
DP from Grace Taylor 12x12 paper pad - Hello Sunshine
Chipboard flower from Craftworks
small flower from stash, inked around the edges with Pink Pirouette
Brad from stash
Nesties - Classic Circles - large and small
               Big Scalloped circles - small
Cheery Lyn Design - Olive branch die

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
(back tomorrow with some, LOL, it's too late)
