Sounds like fun, doesn`t it? Here is a card I created for you to invite you to CELEBRATE with me:




This is my new favourite colour combo and I tried to use all the elements I like best: butterflies, some stamping and stitching, pearls, buttons, flourishes, textpaper, distress inks and some polka dots!

I used Hero Arts "flutterbies" from the digi kit and pearls, Papertrey Ink button, stamp and paper, Creative Imaginations paper and rub-on and Ranger distress inks.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit and I would be happy if you come back!

Hugs from Germany,
Vanessa
