Hello everyone...............hope you are having a lovely weekend and to those who celebrate Easter I wish you a very happy one xx I just can't believe how quickly the months are disappearing !!! It seems no time since Christmas.
The clocks have now sprung forward, which means lighter evenings and hopefully warmer weather is coming our way.
Today I am sharing a birthday card made recently for a dear friend.
Lots of stencilling in the background and you can see the lovely die by Sue Wilson taking centre stage. The butterfly is a die cut and embossing folder from the Tim Holtz range for Sizzix.
Have a wonderful weekend and a great week
The frame and the butterfly are gorgeous together Annie and look fabulous taking centre stage on that wonderfully stencilled background. Love your card and I bet your friend does too.ReplyDelete

Hi Annie. Thanks so much for your lovely comments you've left on my blog. I love reading them and taking them to heart. I love your card you're showing on your blog. The colors are lovely together. I see Tim's new "plus" stencil! I also like your text pieces. I particularly love that gorgeous butterfly in the center of that lovely lacy die cut. Really striking!ReplyDelete
