May your day be filled with flowers

Preferably Spring ones although today's card is more soft shades of Summer:

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- pre-coloured image by LOTV from their 'Friends and Flowers set - cut with a Nestie and mounted onto pink backing card, just by pencilling round the outside of the same die and then cutting by hand

- pink backing card for the patterned card and the sentiment

- patterned paper by Wild Rose Studio, from the 'Vintage Rose' paper pack

- sentiment by Elzybells, having its very first outing (bad girl!), stamped using VersaMagic 'Pink Petunia'

- a strip of pale green ribbon and a bow

- a glossy hand made shrink plastic butterfly

- Josy Rose nail heads

This card is now winging its way to a friend - made specially with her in mind :)

    I trust Len is fully recovered now from his teething problems, I was thinking of sending him one of those baby teething rings to see if it would help.

  15. I am the very lucky recipient of this wonderful card and let me assure you all, it's more beautiful in life. It is proudly sitting on my sideboard and will join the other cherished cards l've been sent since l started blogging.

    Words fail me when it comes to the generosity shown in blogland, it certainly restores my faith in people.

    Big, big thanks Di, l think by now, you know l love the card and my prizes. You are a kind person through and through :)


  16. This card is so sweet...I can hardly believe that you had never inked her before...naughty girl!
    You have picked beautiful colours and the wee butterfly is a cutie too.
    I am up at my Mum's and have managed to pop over to my sisters to catch up on some comments.

  17. Wow Di this is just gorgeous! I love the die used on the cute square, I have got a tonne of those and never thought to use dies on them. Great idea!

  18. Pistols at dawn? Is that allowed Miss in the playground. Gotta think of the health and safety issue here. Can't you and Elizabeth just play snap or sumick.
    Gorgeous card. That image is perfect with the papers and the Flutterby of course. Hugs Mrs A.
