Butterflies and flowers

I've been out today for a haircut and popped in to buy the latest Do Crafts mag and of course had to have a look at the new ranges. Picked up the new papers from Lucy Cromwell, who designed one of my all time faves Henbury Lane. Put it back and thought no I don't need any more paper. Bought some gorgeous decoupage and die cuts for some quicker cards and yes, came out with the paper too. It is soooooo lush.

So, time to post a card. This one isn't a sneak peek, but the DT were asked to make some new samples of some of the older SWALK stamps. She has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs, papers are from the SWALK CD. I have used an MS border punch, Wild Orchid flowers and MS rose petal punch, Memory Box butterfly and dragonfly dies and a Marianne lamppost die. I would like to enter the April showers bring May flowers challenges at The Crafty Pad and Crafty Catz.
