A Few Of My Favourite Things

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good week. After manfully battling through the autumnal challenges I'm back in my comfort zone today with delicate pastel colours, butterflies and fluffy bunnies! :-)  I found this image already coloured  in my cupboard - I did it a while ago ready to co-ordinate with my LotV Nitwits papers but never got round to making the card; so all I had to do was decide on a layout and which papers to use from the pad, and I was away ... easy peasy!  Here's what I made.

As I've said before I think this is my all-time favourite LotV stamp; and it goes so well with these gorgeous pastel papers. I have to admit that I splashed out on 2 reels of ribbon (1 lavender, 1 green) and some cherry blossom flowers specially to go with the papers, but I foresee making a LOT of cards using this pad.  I also decided to ink up my new geisha scroll and one of the co-ordinating sentiments that arrived yesterday - I think they look really fresh with this colour scheme and  aren't restricted to being used with the geisha girl stamps.

Stamps: LotV "Patchwork Butterfly"; scroll from Geisha Companions Set and matching sentiment;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
 Papers: LotV "Promises" by Nitwits;
Supplies: pearls and cherry blossoms from The Hobby House; ribbon from John lewis;
Tools: small, large and scalloped circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "woodland branch" edge punch; Leone Em "Ash Branch" leaf punch.
