Smile - Papillon Potpourri is on special offer!

My card today is a compilation of some of my current favourite things: Gorgeous Grunge (one of my 'must have' stamp sets from the annual catalogue); a colour combination of Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate (oh YES!); my favourite sentiment possibly of all time; and a gorgeous little butterfly that is a bit of a bargain! Come and see:


I stamped one of the Gorgeous Grunge images in Smoky Slate, then added the ink splodge image over the top of it in Wisteria Wonder. Did I mention that I love this colour combination?! I layered the sentiment on top of the background using a stampamajig to make sure I got it where I wanted it.


Do you see what I mean about this sentiment? I find myself smiling the moment I see it! To emphasise it even more, I added a double pierced border and a brightly coloured butterfly. This gorgeous little  chap comes from the gorgeous Papillon Potpourri stamp set and cuts out in pico seconds with the Bitty Butterfly punch. The best bit is that you can buy the stamp set and punch together and save 15% at the moment!

Punch with wood mount stamp set was £31.20 now only  £26.52
Punch with cling mount stamp set was £28.20 now only  £23.97

  7. Great card Vicky, these colours look great together. Can't help smiling when you see that sentiment.

    Weather was gorgeous on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday was Gala Day in the village where I work. Needless to say it wasn't brilliant but at least it was dry! Today is gorgeous again and really warm in spite of being very windy!

    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog.
