Butterfly Tree

Good evening everyone!

Hope you are all well.

I have had a busy few weeks including a wonderful holiday in Madeira at the beginning of February.  It was lovely to get away to that beautiful island and we really enjoyed the fact that it was so much warmer than here!  Lots of sun too. 

This card was one that Barbara Gray created on her blog a while ago and I liked it so much I thought I would have a go!  Needless to remark it is nowhere near as professional as Barbara's but I still am reasonably happy with the result.

For the background I used Distress ink pads - several different colours of yellow and orange. I then spritzed it with water before adding the mountains which were created using Pebble (I think) Adirondak.  The stamp is Clarity Stamps  from the "Butterfly Tree Set".

Hope you like it.

Hugs  Di xx
