Good morning everyone. Did you see the Diamond Jubilee Concert last night? It was really good and so glad the weather was better than the day before. I thought the Queen looked lovely.
For my card today I have used a rubber stamp by Santa Rosa that I have had for many years and I have shown a card made from it before on my blog but I think she has to be one of my favourites. I do like using some of my old stamps and think its a shame not to. Having said that I still have lots of stamps I have never used!! Anyway here she is:
I have coloured her with Copics and a touch of Prismas (I just realised that I forgot to add the hint of blue to the edges of her wings that I was going to lol). The paper is by Bo Bunny from their Country Garden Collection. I have added a touch of Stickles to her dress and the edges of the image has been distressed with Shabby Shutters and Antique Linen DI. I have used Spellbinders Labels Die to cut the image out and Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles to edge the piece of DP on the side. The butterflies have been cut with a Dienamics Die and then covered with Stickles. The flowers are made with Cheery Lynn Build a Flower and have a metal brad in the centre. Charm and ribbon are from my stash.

Well that's it from me for today. I have to do some more DT work today as I will be a bit busy the next couple of days. Luckily the weather isn't up to much and everywhere will be busy with it being a BH so its a good excuse to lock myself up in my craft room! Thanks for looking and take care xx
