Special Flutterby Wishes

Good morning. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish a speedy recovery.
The sun is shining today which us sooooo lovely - hope it is shining wherever you are too :o)
I have been up with the larks this morning and got the h/w done and dusted (literally) and even cleaned the windows - something I haven't been able to do for a while so it was a real pleasure to do them :o)

So my share for today is a card I have made for the new challenge at Die-Ing for a Challenge
which is a fab sketch with a CAS feel

I recently bought some new stamps from the Joanna Sheen stamp range 'I Love Knitting' especially for this stunning flutterby stamp and I knew I just had to stamp it onto parchment and then heat emboss it with True White EP from Creative Expresssions

Here's a close up of the stunning flutterby :o)

I also stamped one of the borders from the set onto parchment and heat embossed with True White EP and then mat and layered it onto some card stock with the edge die cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities.

Design Paper - Melissa Frances '5th Avenue' - available from Dies to Die For
Sentiment - Hobby Art 
Adhesive Pearls from stash

Challenges I made my card for:
Sassy Cheryl's - Butterflies
Tip Top Tuesday - Spotty Dotty 
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes

Thanks for your visit today - I would love to know you have been so I can come and visit you too.
Have a wonderful day.
