Field of Flowers...

This is the first card I have made for a few days as I have had a stinking cold and not felt like crafting.. I still dont feel 100% and my mojo seems to have gone on holiday but this is what I came up with today, again the photograph's not brilliant as its so dark and dull...where is Spring?

I've used some of my new Stampin Up goodies....firstly the stamp set which is called 'Field of Flowers'...I've used Island Indigo and Baja Blue card and ink pads,  I also used a couple of stamps from the 'French Foiliage' set for the background, these two stamps are so useful for making backgrounds.

I've placed the image inside the S.U Framed Tulips embossing folder.  Backing papers are  called 'Sycamore Street'. also the Itty Bitty Banner stamps were also from the -Sale-A-Bration.

Just added a butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri set and a small punched butterfly that also goes with this set....

The weather is certainly crazy at the moment...I hope those of you with snow are keeping warm, and those who have floods keeping safe...

Anne....

You've certainly incorporated a few of your new goodies in this pretty card - love the colours. How did I manage to miss seeing that embossing folder - looks good. Hope the Mojo comes back soon - probably gone into hibernation with mine this cold weather.
