Just a Note.

Internet decided to do one of its  ( as  it now seems) periodic runners and only just got reconnected a few mins  ago. Still it enabled me to have the time to clear out my cache of photo's and have found some cards that I haven't shown yet . ( I do quite a lot of swaps and as you can't show them until after they have been received I tend to store them and then forget about them ).
This one was done for a card swap back in November and went to my recipient in USA.The colour theme was to use coco/shell/pale coco and I chose the theme of friendship.
I had recently won this stamp from the same swap blog so wanted to incorporate in this card. The stamp is a combined die cut from Sizzix called Noted 659521.  Th butterflies are the outcuts from a Tonic butterfly die cut.

I used a blank card base and adhered layers of the required colours as the matt for the die cut pieces.
