Live, Laugh, Love

Good morning.
Hope you are all well this beautiful bright and sunny morning. Those not I wish well very soon.

Today I'm sharing a card I made just for the fun of it - using a stamp that my lovely blogging friend Sam (AKA Whisper) sent to me for my birthday - thank you hun :o)

I stamped the flower image onto the spotty DP - 'My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Bluebell Collection'
a few times so that I could cut various layers out to decoupage them.

This fabulous sentiment is from Indigo Blu 'Live Laugh Love' stamp set as are the flutterbys
and I stamped them direct onto the base layer DP - from The Sweetest Thing Bluebell Collection 

Leaves from the same stamp plate stamped onto blue cardstock 

This shows the layering of the flower a little better.

I really enjoyed making this card - hope you like it too :o)
