Summer colours

The theme for this week's Sunday Stampers on Hels' blog is 'summer colours' so I chose pretty shades of soft green and peach plus the sign of summer (to me anyway) a beautiful butterfly..



The background is decorator's chalks through a butterfly stencil and I used the same green on the mat before edging and stamping in Adirondack Meadow.

The deckle edge is done with a fine-liner so there is no bulk on the card and I can get away without using a 'large letter' stamp and have a bit more money for rubber when I go to the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight on the Wirral in just over two weeks time - can't wait.

Hi Ann, I love that butterfly stamp and the colours you have used do remind me of summer. It is lovely. I ordered my tickets but haven't got them yet, hope they have not sold out.
