For my card today I have used one of the new Elisabeth Bell stamps – this is Honeybee and isn’t she just the sweetest little poppet!!!  And Ann has come up better than trumps with this Spell It Out scrabble tiles set – I have been after something like this forever so this is one set of stamps that will be a permanent fixture on my desk!  I tell ya when I saw it was being released I was thrilled to bits!!

The delish paper is Nitwit Collections Sunshine and Laughter collection.  I tweaked the saturation settings though as I wanted a more grey blue rather than the bright baby blue, I am really thrilled with the gorgeous shade I managed to get printed, and even better it matched the flowers to perfection.  I am not a yellow fan so desaturating got me a lovely creamy colour to match the antique linen used to colour the image.  I am SO anal about colours matching lol.  The blue in the paper matched the Stormy Sky ink that I used to colour the dress – I’m a happy bunny it all matches haha

And of course the stunning flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts … where else?!  I used a 40mm trellis rose, 25mm cottage rose, aster daisies, 10mm roses, stamens.  The little white daisies will be in stock at WOC SOON Open-mouthed smile The lace is also from WOC as are the pearls.  The mesh butterfly was a in a surprise gift from the lovely Jacque – thanks sweetie xx
