Summer garden

Hi, i was inspired to make this card by the challenge at the
Simon Says Stamp Monday blog where the theme is "I ought to use this more".

I've had this designer paper for ages, along with lots of other sheets, and thought I should start using it!
The butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and coloured with inktense pencils.

I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at Seize the birthday.

It's also anything goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Materials used:
Designer paper; Hero Arts antique engravings stamp; Memory Box label die; sentiment sticker; double sided tape.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
