Today we have been out enjoying the fabulous sunshine (when it finally arrived) and sitting watching the Farnborough Air Show as the planes flew over. Unfortunately after a busy theme park day for my little one yesterday and a late drive back he fell asleep way before the Red Arrows display he had been waiting for started. Oh well, another chance tomorrow to see them if he can stay awake!!
Today's card is a simple design using some of the new In Colours 2014-2016 again. I have layered in Smoky Slate and Whisper White with a circle cutout with the Circles Collections Framelits dies. I have left off all the dimensionals or any embellishments on this one so apart from the butterfly there is nothing standing out to cause the extra postage.
I simply stamped using the Petite Petals with the colours Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey in a random pattern. I have been using only one or two of the flower designs so I had purposefully picked out one of the other designs for this card and I am glad I did.
The 'Thank You' comes from the Something to Say stamp set which is already proving very useful for a number of occasions and celebrations. You can never have too many thank you cards lined up ready to send. The butterfly, of course, you will recognise from the Papillon Potpourri set as it has made a number of appearances, but with all these flowers in the garden in bloom and watching the wildlife each day it is hard not to put the two together too when crafting.
I love the new colours and I am loving finding new combinations with them with both my existing stamp sets and the new ones I have to show you too.
Don't forget to drop by again soon for some new inspiration.
