Friday Sketchers - Papilio "Lida in the Garden"


Couldn't wait to play with these gorgeous Papilio stamps from Hobby Norge in Norway. The service from this company was excellent. I ordered these stamps Wednesday and they arrived yesterday. These girls are just the cutest. Don't get me wrong I love Hanglar and Magnolia stamps as you know but just look at her darling face. This card has been made for this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge. Thank you for the great sketch Kimmie.

Card details:
Stamps: Papilio "Lida in the Garden"
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps & Sakura Stardust pen watercoloured for added sparkle.
Paper: Bazzill & Basic Grey Sugared
Embellishments: Buttons - Panduro, Flowers from Rebecca's Scrapbooking May kit & Brad. The gorgeous little heart button is handmade by my friend Stéphanie.

I have one of these stamps to give away in my blog candy which I will be running very soon. x
