Friends - what could be nicer

Hi there!

I've been away for the weekend - just a nice little break in a lovely old country hotel called the Cook and Barker in Northumberland - not far from Alnwick -Harry Potter country!  It's only an hour or so from home but a really beautiful part of the world, the coast is lined with little towns and fishing villages and further inland its so green and peacful and quiet, I just love it up there.....  So thats why I did no crafting or cards since Thursday. 

Todays card is a pretty lili of the valley girlie stamp, its (another) one of my favourites.  I really liked this K & Co paper and knew it needed to be a lovely blue and pink card today, with my favourite butterflies and pearls and a few flowers and ribbon just for good measure!

I coloured this with copics and prismacolor pencils, the lacey butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and the die cuts are spellbinders. The ribbon is a really pretty check from carnmeal cottage - it doesn't show up so well on the photo, all other embellies are from my stash.

I decorated the inside to match with butterflies from another Martha Stewart punch and a spellbinders die for the greeting  - I just love those colours!

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

Saturday challenge - Ribbons
