Quick card

This is just a quick card that I did for no reason at all.

The stamped image is from Lil of the Valley  and they have some of the cutest stamps around.

There is a  new range of them for Christmas 2012.

More stamps being added all the time ... so always worth popping back for a visit.

I have coloured the image with pastel colours of pale lemon,  pale lilac and the palest of greens.

I have then used  the same three colours to create the dotty background around them both and to get the stripes in the  backing paper to blend with my design.

The colour scheme has been continued with the card used for matting and layering  and to punch the Monarch butterflies from  Martha Stewart punch.

And finally I have added some lilac organza ribbon and colour coded the pearls along each of the butterflies bodies.

And there we have a quick card and nobody to send it too...... aaawwww!!
