WOW 'Take Time to Enjoy Life's Simple Pleasures!'

Good evening all,
I hope you have all had a great weekend, myself, hubby and pooch spent the day with my parents and had a scrummy bbq it was a real good chill out day which was much needed. All feeling a little rubbish at the mo as after a long 6 months off work after his accident in December the consultant has informed us that hubby's foot has not mended properly and he requires another operation which could mean anything up to another 6 months off work. Hate to see hubby so frustrated and in pain and I have to say selfishly that it is not helping my crafting mojo at all so please bare with me.
Anyway this evening I want to share a very simple creation with you, a WOW card using the beautiful 'Juliet In A Field of Nasturtiums' by Stampavie.

The flowers and flourish dies are from Marianne D, the ovals are Nesties and the embossing folder is Swiss Dots from Cuttlebug. As usual I have coloured the beautiful Juliet with Promarkers and the lovely little sentiment is by Papermania.
