Sunny!

Its gorgeous and sunny here after the storms and rain over the weekend which encouraged me to use a bit more colour this morning creating this card.




I think I might have just made it in time for the Crazy Amigo challenge which is Insects.



Here I used a selection of stamps available from The Artistic Stamper. The butterfly and dragonfly are from the Insects and Butterfly plate and the verse is by Stampers Anonymous.

I love the closs up of the borders - so very pretty - and the butterfly and dragon fly look so realistic.

We had sunshine for three hours then hailstones - but at least I got our for a walk.

Beautiful piece Jo. How lovely to see the sun in your card! We had quite a bit here too but it was accompanied by a biting wind which made it feel soooooo cold.
