Butterfly Girl

Good morning all! Its a bright and shiny day here in Hornby near Lancaster. I can't believe just how lucky we've been the last few days - its been stunning! Can I just take this opportunity to say welcome to my new followers and thanks to everyone who has been taking the time to leave kind comments on my posts - I really do appreciate the feedback - thankyou!

Well I've just been to my aerobics class and now I'm all fired up ready to make my first post of the day.

As you can see Tilda is looking very pretty today - I had to wait a full fortnight to get hold of this stamp and I love it to bits - I think you may be seeing quite a lot of it!
So my recipe:
1. stamped the mage using expresso adirondack ink pad and coloured in using promarkers.
2. Cut out the image and stuck onto a doily.
3. Layered up the backing paper in stripes and added lace (from dunelm mill) to the paper joins. Added Tilda topper and some extra butterflies and the sentiment from kanban.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
TOMIC challenge inspired by Magnolia Ink Magazine.

Anything goes at Sweet Stampin Challenge

Here's hoping you all have a beautiful day - and enjoy this glorious sunshine xx
