Creative Card Crew -Anything Goes

Hi girls. Great to have you here again. I hope that as you start off the weekend you have a lot of fun things lined up. I am in for a quiet weekend myself - recharging batteries - with a bit of crafting thrown in no doubt.
I made this card as a change from my usual girly style - a bit simpler than my normal but I enjoyed making this clean and simple card. I am entering it into the current Creative Card Crew challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes". I'm quite pleased with myself because this is my third card in three days - the first time I've managed that for a long time.
The stamp is one that my DIL Sarah brought up on holiday with her and I'm afraid we were so busy chatting that I forgot to take a note of its name and make. The flowers were cut using a medium retro punch and I finished them off with bling from my stash. The edge was cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The papers are craft and brown card to mount. The sentiment is Sarah's as well.
I hope you like this and I would love to hear what you think of it if you have a minute to leave a comment.
Have a great weekend and above all stay safe and healthy.
