Card for a swap friend

Good morning my dears,  I wanted to show the card I made to send to my swap partner along with her little coloured canvas bag which you can see HERE.  I love sending and of course receiving little surprises in the post especially when they are hand made.

Anyway I used my 5"x5" scallop nestablilities for the base of my card and some K&Co Brenda Walton papers.  My image is of course sweet waterlily Tilda from the Summer Memories collection and she has been coloured with copics and pencils. The lace circle is from Marianne Designs, Tim Holtz on the edge flutterby die and Magnolia Doohickey swirls die.  The little bird cage is from hobbycraft wedding stationery and is actually part of a napkin holder.  The little roses are from my stash.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope I have given you a little inspiration. I also want to thank you all for the lovely comments you leave me,  it brightens my day so much.
