Birds, Butterflies and Flowers

Hello Blogland
What have I got to show you today....??
It has birds, butterflies and flowers - I think that pretty much ticks all my boxes!

This is one of my cards featured in this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine fully utilising the patterned paper (Pink Paislee - Spring Jubilee).
I've used Foliage and Rose Creations offset with one of the freebie chipboard pieces.  
I chose not to curl the leaves too much - such a versatile die, managed to squeeze in some twine -
I'm a little addicted to twine (so many addictions in my crafty world!)
Today I'm at home working through my various lists - I purchased a white board which I hoped would keep me organised and save me time but I seem to spend a lot of that valuable time staring at it, scribbling on it, reorganising it and finding little smiley faces drawn on it..thank you boys! 
Oh well - it all turns out okay in the end...
Have a happy Wednesday - 'see' you all tomorrow.

Very pretty card Christine

Good luck with your white board I use my phone for reminders cos I always have it with me lol
I remember my son (about 7 at the time) drawing a smiley face in the big dot above the I in Habitat on a job application I filled in years ago. I had to send it in but they thought it was funny and I did get a job

Hi Christine and everyone,
I am back after being poorly for a couple of weeks! I have missed my daily visit so very much.
Todays card is lovely I had seen it in my magazine all of the cards you made with the free papers this month were beautiful.
Hope you are all well.
Huge hugs
Sandra xx

Hi Christine,
I love the design of your card, but I am truly sorry to say it is a little busy for me (which is strange as I love floral papers etc)
I hope you've managed to get your board sorted now. My visitors like to write things like 'I woz ere' etc on my boards (I have 3in all)
All the best linda

Lovely card. All the elements are so subtle. I kept looking at it and seeing more and more. I think the twine looks like stitching. Nice touches, all the way around.
