Wishing you peace

Hi there, thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you are all having a good week. I have been trying to organize some of my craft bits but I'm getting nowhere he he!

I wanted to use these butterfly stamps and decided to make a sympathy card with them. I have made this card for a few challenges:

shabby tea room week #163 spring bliss
word art wednesday challenge #77

At the tea room we had this gorgeous picture to inspire us:

And here is my card:



As usual I have made the flowers :) using Marianne rolled flower die English rose. I was very surprised that I used a lot of green as I rarely use so much on one card. I used a yellow polkadot paper and hand stitched around the edges in a green thread. I then coloured a plain doily in green and used this as a layer, before adding a white doily (Nellie snellen doily),  I also hand stitched the circle topper using a brown thread.

I coloured in my stamps with pro markers, and I also coloured a few flowers adding some polka dots to the big flower

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, if you have any questions please ask :)

Have a wonderful day,

Vic .
