Plum Pudding ~ LOTV die cut

Good afternoon
I am having one of those days today ... you know the ones where you have loads to do but not achieving much!  I am feeling a bit sad because it would have been my dad's 65th birthday today and to top if off I am coming down with a cold so all in all feeling a bit down in the dumps.  To try and cheer myself up I decided to make a card this morning but even that didn't work out as I had planned it in my head.  Oh well I guess they can't all be masterpieces lol!
Anyway enough of my woes and onto my card! 

* Card Recipe *

Hi Lisa I am sorry that you are feeling down I know what that is like especially at the moment, it is special times like birthdays and Christmas that we remember the ones we lost with that little bit of extra sadness. However as far as your card is concerned it is beautiful I think you have got it just right, that wonderful image the corner die cut, I just bought this one, and the papers all look super, super. Take care
