Chrissy's Card

Good morning everyone, I can't believe its Monday already.  My brother John and his wife Chrissy came across from Manchester yesterday to see my Mum, we had a barbecue and my brother is such a comedian we didn't stop laughing. It was lovely to see my Mum smiling and reminiscing.  Candice also had her boy friend Callum over so altogether there was eight of us.  It was a lovely day, and the weather even held out for us... very windy but no rain!  It is Chrissy's birthday on Tuesday and I made her this card hope you like it....

The photo's are not very good I'm afraid as I took them last minute, almost forgot to take any lol!!
I have used LOTV's new realease 'Quotables' - 'Celebrate' and for the inside 'Set 10' A5 Verses sheet.
Paper is Nit Wit Collections - 'Petal Fresh' and the lovely border die is by Spellbinders 'A2 Curved Borders One'  Also used Lacey Ovals from Spellbinders for the sentiments. Flowers from 'Wild Orchid Crafts' and the lovely butterfly is a 'Inkylicious stamp 'Flutters 1'  I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz 'Weathered Wood'.
