Bright Pastels And A Blue Rinse

Two posts in one day?

Well I’m keeping with the Quixotic Paperie theme and just wanted to show you my latest make using things you can get in the shop. The papers are from K&Co Sparkly Sweet collection and I’ve cut out the butterflies from one of the papers to use as an embellishment.

I’m sure you will recognise the yummy The Greeting Farm Wild Sprout Annika stamp? Some fabby charms, a little touch of Shimmerz paints on the image matt and I might have done some stitching.

There you go – a finished card – Hurrah!

Have a super blue rinse Thursday
