Hi All

I'm not posting a Mother's Day card today but just thought I'd wish any mum's out there a happy day and hope you are being spoilt!

I've two cards to post today - can't seem to get my mojo in gear properly but I was a lucky lady this morning as my kids bought me the Elegant Butterfly stamps from Clearly Besotted so I've had a play with them ...

This card is to enter three challenges:

CAS Colours & Sketches - sketch week
Timeout Challenge #2 (new one for me)


Card Recipe:

Image: Clearly Besotted - Elegant Butterflies
Sentiment: Uniko Studio - Flower Power 2
From my stash: gems and papers plus a glittering with Wink of Stella

Next up is another challenge combo; this time Less is More (where this week's theme is Round and Round) and CAS(E) This Sketch. When I saw the sketch I knew I'd like to use my country landscape cutting die from Memory Box so I've switched the square for a circle frame then gone a bit over-board on circles for the 'round and round theme' LIM theme! Even went for dotty paper behind my image!

The papers are from my stash and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Home Sweet Home set plus there's a little sprinkle of Wink of Stella on the inner white circle and windows.

Ok that's all for me I'm off for a lovely tea prepared by Mr Dazzle and the mini Dazzles.
