I've had this stamp set for ages and hardly used this image so far so thought it was time it made an appearance.  This card is destined for the craft fair stall so it's not been made with anyone in particular in mind but birthday cards are the most popular and anything with embellishments sells well.

I've used PTI's Fine Linen cardstock for the base with matching satin ribbon. The stamp and sentiment are also PTI.  The patterned paper is from a bundle I won on ebay so I'm afraid do not know the name of this.  I just added some pink pearls along the edge of the patterned paper so it wasn't so harsh and flat. Overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Have a good one.

One of my fav colour combinations is Orange and Blue and as I haven't done one of these for a while now, it was time to put one together again.

I've used Orange Zest cardstock and ink with some Hawaiian Shores as the base, and a little touch of Snow White ink on the bottom half of the card. (All PTI).

The stamps are from Wreath for all Seasons and the sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes.  Once I'd put it all together I felt it needed something else so added the rhine stones and the twine and then felt that was enough.

Yummy - I love those colours together.  Bright and tangy!

Another little butterfly card to show you.  I've tried something similar with this butterfly die before (Here) and it worked really well so I've tried another one here.

The sentiment and little snail are both PTI are is the cardstock and twine.  I think it's really cute and will be packaged up ready to go with my other cards for the up and coming craft fairs in a few months time.  The butterfly die is from Spellbinders and I've just raised the Kraft cardstock off the card base with foam pads to give it some depth.

Hope you have a great week all.
Take care
