Cute Card Thursday - Strawberry Mint Julep

Hello,
Two posts in one morning, that's good for me! If you are interested in seeing the first post, please scroll down.
I'm afraid the ironing lost out this morning but I have made myself a promise to tackle it this evening! Instead I have made another card in an attempt to force my mojo to return.
I am entering it into this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge where the theme is Strawberry Mint Julep (use green and pink on your card).

Here's what I used to make this card:-
Stamps: from Papertrey set "Everyday Button Bits" (you can just about see the sentiment)
Ink: SU "So Saffron"
DP: SU "Tea Party"
CS: SU Kraft
Tools: Scorpal; Martha Stewart border punch, X-cut large and small circle punches
Accessories: bead from stash
Many thanks for visiting and taking a look.
Have a lovely day!

Clare xx

Fab cards today Clare!!! Crafting should always go before ironing, hehe. Mojo will return, it only takes a break sometimes. Someone told me that during those breaks the creative mind is working :)

Hi Clare. Two beautiful cards, I especially like the hearts. I'm afraid my ironing came first today so no crafting, Boo Hoo!!!! There's always tomorrow.
