MIM#165 A flower for You with Saturated Canary

Good morning, it's going to be a hot one here today so I'm writing up my post as I wait for my grandson to be dropped off for me to look after. I did most of the washing yesterday but I suppose I probably should get an early load on so I don't have to be hanging it outside in the heat later.  My son dropped in yesterday and said he supposed it was time to clean up for Christmas, he was talking about himself, but I think it was a non too subtle hint for me to tidy away my craft gear in preparation for the Christmas onslaught.
I'm going to have two posts today as I got the chance to be a Guest Designer at Incy Wincy Challenge Blog for the month of November, so please drop back in later tonight to check out my first card for them.
Well, Monday means the start of a new linky party at Make It Monday, This is where you can enter as many times as you like and even share an older creation. All we ask is that is be a papercraft project and that there is a current link to Make It Monday blog, not hard is it and we encourage you to visit the other entries and leave them a comment. There is always so many wonderful, inspirational creations to look at.
I would like to congratulate Susan as our featured artist and also Lisa as the winning commenter. Enjoy your prize.
We are being sponsored by Saturated Canary this time around and I used this wonderful image.
I've been making a lot of square cards lately so thought I would go back to a rectangle for this one. Less room to play with but you can still make a statement!

White card from stash for matte and diecut
