All of a Flutter!

Hello to Everyone, and I hope your day has been better than mine. I'm sure you've all had them, the sort of day when nothing goes  right, keep dropping things, tripping, and feeling like I should call a halt to day and begin again.  My lentil soup, split over the a cushion seat of the sofa and a bit of the carpet, just to put the tin lid on it. I could have wept, and this was because I put the bowl on the arm
of the sofa the whilst I answered the door, and I wish I hadn't. I know, I know stupid place to lay it down, but there you go. I've given it as good a clean as I can at the moment, but you can see that it's staining, of course Teallach was over trying to help by licking it up, so I was attempting to keep him at bay. Then Bloody Blogger was playing up, couldn't get on to it, or any websites. The circle just kept turning, eventually I'm here at last.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, you are kind and I do appreciate each one.
My offering today is a tag, not something I make really unless for Christmas gifts and this one has come by default as I was trying to do a water colour wash as a background and made a bit of a botch of it, but didn't want to discard it completely, see what you think;
As you can see my card is for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge, and unfortunately the colours are not too good in my photo, but I have tried to replicated the colours for the challenge.
I've used images for CB All of a Flutter stamp set and coloured with Ink Intense and Prismacolour pencils. DI for the background on Strathmore Watercolour Paper. Star Dust and gems, ribbon and pearls from my box.

Well back to work tomorrow, and I hope we will have some news about our continued existence as there was a big meeting between the Bigwigs on Monday,  I just wonder why it takes so long to decide, both the staff and our clients are fed up with the state of limbo.

Anyway, I'll away and get the dishes washed, my dishwasher is away at his music evening, so take care everyone and this post will be my last live post till I'm back from holiday, I've scheduled my CCC for Sunday.
I would like to enter my cards into;
