70th birthday

Hello everyone :o)

Today's card is for an order, and I've been very brave and used one of my last remaining pieces of GCD Studios 'Ella Blue' paper... it's my absolute favourite paper pad and is nearly all gone... sob!  Don't suppose anyone knows if it's still sold anywhere so I can get another?

Items Used
Card base - Grand Nestabilities Labels 1
Stamp - Apothecary Art - Stampin' Up
Matching frame dies - Stampin' Up
Colouring - copics
Butterflies - Impression Obsession Butterfly Set dies - MCH
Pearls from my stash
Computer generated sentiment - Chocolate Box font

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Totally Papercrafts - no squares allowed
MAWTT - shape up
My Time to Craft - butterflies

It's been raining and a bit blustery today, but no signs (yet) of the huge storm that's supposed to be coming, although I don't think we're due to have it as bad as those of you down south... Hope it's not too bad where you are!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Lovely card Lisa! I do like that colour combo, and the stamp and die cuts look fab. Isn't it funny how we crafty people have papers we don't want to be without. Hope you find some more or a follower has some spare, fingers crossed. Debra x

Hi Lisa

This has been my favourite stack of all time .. .. just a few pages left for me too :-(

Perhaps we should start a blog petition to get it put back into production.

Love your card and hope that all is good and not too busy at your end!!

Love Jules xx

Lisa, this is stunning.

Your combination of papers and stamps is beautiful.

I can see why you love those papers so much, shame they have stopped producing them, maybe Jules has the answer with a petition!

Love Sheila x
