Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Housework all done, waiting for washing to dry and then get some ironing done.  I am hoping to get into my craft room later on and get some crafting done.  I am going to be playing with my new Stampin Up stamps and inks, see how the mood takes me.

I finally finished sorting out my craft room yesterday so it is all nice and tidy and got rid of a lot of rubbish.  Some items I have decided to sell, as they are just sitting there and not being used.  It is funny how your crafting changes over the years.  Anyway here is today's card.

6 x 6 white square card
First layer is from First Edition Boho Chic papers which I have wrapped some lace around.
The second layer is from my stash which I have cut into a scalloped circle using my Spellbinder Die
The Topper is from Kraftyhands Love & Hope Die Cut Toppers
The butterfly has been cut using card from my stash using Spellbinder Papillion dies
I have added pearl swirls, 3 pearl gems and a sentiment all from my stash

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

Fab card as always Linda. Love that background!

I know what you mean about your crafting direction changing. I have so much stuff which I will never use now. Think I'll be lightening my load before we move across country.

Really beautiful hun, I love the image and the layout and textures are gorgeous, the lace is really pretty too. Lol my craft stuff is crying out for a good sort out but I never seem to get around to it (crafting would be so much quicker if I did because I might actually be able to find things lol). Hope you have a fantastic weekend

Wow Linda another stunning card. I love that backing and the colour. It is so textural you want to touch it. The topper against that backing is gorgeous. Love your cards...always have and always will.
