Thank you Phillipa

Happy Friday everyone. I'm sure you are all glad that the weekend has just about arrived.

This card that I am sharing today was made for someone in particular who follows my blogs. You may remember that I had received a lovely package of die cuts in the post from Phillipa. Well, I decided I would make a thank you card with one of the dies that she had sent and also included some of my own die cuts for her.

Phillipa has text me today thanking me for the package which means now that she has seen the card, I can post it! Yay!

Here is the card -

The die cut that I received from Phillipa is called Palace Oval Frame. Isn't it just lovely. I have used some of my favourite colours at the moment from the new In Colours by Stampin' Up. My favourite stamp set at the moment HAS to be Papillon Potpourri. I LOVE these butterflies with their co-ordinating punches. The flowers are from Inspired by Stamping.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

House of Cards - Photo Inspiration (this is my 2nd entry). I have once again used the lovely colours from the branch of flowers and the white chairs in the background.

It's been a while since I have been able to link up with Flutter by Wednesdays and I am lucky enough that they have an Anything Goes challenge (#255) this week.

Happy Campers challenge #22 is to show your flowers.

As I have used my roses that are from Inspired by Stamping, I will link this card to their Customer Gallery for October.

So, once again I would like to thank Phillipa so very much for her pressie. I used the Frostyville Die that was sent in my package for a card that I entered at 52 CC Throwdown and it won Top Honour! You can see the card HERE.

A quick shout out to my other favourite stalker, Trudi!! Hello, toots!!
