All the colours of the rainbow

This is a simple card I have made using another of the LC Designs dinkies stamps which are on offer. I thought all those Butterflies called out for lots of colour and I used just about every one of my pens to colour them in. I don't like Butterflies or Moths and as Butterflies are so popular in crafting I see them as scary or not scary, I cant even use a Butterfly that I think of as scary but as you can see these are definitely not scary.

what I used:
LC Designs Dinkies Butterfly Tree stamp - £2 or on offer 4 for £6
Lilly of the Valley stitch stamp set
Tonic heart punch
small hole punch (to make dots on sentiment tag)
red linen card
various satin paper scraps from stash (to make hearts)
pink embroidery thread
I bought an air bed a week ago because my sister is coming to stay and I was dreading inflating it as I had read lots of horror stories about air beds not inflating properly and being lumpy and I didn't want to have to send it back, my usual worrying about something before it happens. I thought I had better inflate it and guess what it worked just fine. It only took about 30 seconds and it is so comfy, panic over. I am going into town to get some bedding for it today but that will be a nice shopping trip, just a shame there are no craft shops in town. I do hope you have a good day whatever you are doing.
