Less is more week 14 2nd effort.

Well couldn't resist having another go at this one, but this time I gave in to temptation and 'did flowers' I make so many card with flowers but I think it's because I love having flowers in the garden and hardly ever pick them for the house. They last so much longer outside don't they and it seems cruel to bring them indoors.
I suppose this could be a wedding card but as it says 'Congratulations' it could easily fit lots of occasions.
I used a white linen card for the 5" square base and a 'Nestie' to cut the apperture.  The centre circle is a smaller 'Nestie' and is held in place with the daisies. These were in a bargain pack I found in Poundland months ago and I use them a lot, sometimes colouring them with Promarkers.
The sentiment is the same Sizzlet I used on the other card. I finished the flowers with white Candi in the centre.
Thanks to all the Limettes who've left such lovely comments on my first card.
