Lots of layers

Morning All and if you are in the UK I hope you are having a good May Day Holiday ( those of you lucky enough not to be working that is). Surprise and I had a lovely peaceful ride this morning and didn't see a single human...lots of pheasants squawking and birds singing but no people!! 

I love it now the nights are lighter as it means that once home from work or doing outside things I am still able to grab a little crafty therapy. Here is my latest make.


I really enjoyed making this card using another LOTV sketch (#10 this time) and Just a Note that I coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers. I used a very old paper pad that had script on it that I thought was just right. I used  notebook and butterfly dies for some interest and some pearls as a finishing touch. The Just a note sentiment came from a  Clearly Besotted sentiment set.

I was inspired by these challenges

The Crafting Cafe - Creatures
My Mum's Craft Shop #17 - Lots of layers
Allsorts #257 - Butterflies
Created with Love #81 - For the love of critters

That's it for now folks. Thanks for your lovely comments, it's always appreciated xx
