Sending Love and Hugs

Morning all.
Just stopping by to share a card I made just for the fun of it for a change.
I wanted to enter this month's Altenew challenge and the current Card Concept one too, so I combined them both with this. ATCAS have since started their Floral challenge so I shall enter there as well.

I started this last week but my grandson and his Ma and Pa were here until this morning so it was put on the back burner, but now I'm free to share. He is growing up so fast, only just 7, size 2 shoes and aged 8-9 clothes. He's also developed the back chat I remember so well from his U Chris, my youngest. In fact he resembles him in so many ways!
Anyway back to the card, made using fussy cut flowers from Altenew's Extra Special with a little help from Beautiful Day, Adore You sentiment and SU's hardwood in the background. The frame is cut from silver Mirri card using an old Spellbinders die popped up over a stamped distressed wood panel. I took my inspiration for this from the distressed door in the CC picture, adding a few Copic coloured, bright pink booms and a little of the bright blue, the colours of the Altenew pic. I used Memento London Fog for the Adore You sentiment and embossed it with clear EP.
