Green Flower

I have friends visiting from Australia at the moment and we went away for the weekend with them. It was a sort of Staycation for us as it was only about half an hours drive from home but we stayed in an apartment right on the beach. It was really great spending time with them and even though we were so close to home walks on the beach and lazy late breakfasts with lots of chatting made me return home feeling very relaxed. It's always great catching up with good friends.

My card today is very Clean and Simple. 

I took my inspiration from this lovely one of Ardyth's over at Maskerade

I did some doodling around the edge to finish them off.
