 Hello everyone,

I had some happy mail the other day..

I ordered these goodies and they came before I could blink..
The first packet I opened were the most exciting for me..

I just had to spread it all around my desk to see how much was in there and I was astounded and the quality and the amount  of die cuts..

These Butterflies are perfect and with a hint of glitter here and there..

I love all the birds and Bee's...

And had to make a card straight away, and it is a big one...

I placed all my die cuts where I thought I wanted them onto a lovely greenish plaid paper..

Added some left over water coloured leaves..

Gave the butterfly and body..

Using this die that I won YEARS ago..

I wanted to add some micro pearls and did that by mixing them up with glue and spreading it over...looks terrible like this, but when it dries...

Ta pretty and dainty..

And there is my card, all done, with lots of layers and textures and I really like it..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
