Papilio image

Hi everyone, I made this card this evening using K&Co sparkly Sweet papers and the background green paper is Certain Celery design paper, I'm not sure if you can see from the photo, but this paper has the cutest little white dotty flowers on it...... Stamped image was from a swap I did with Nikki, I think it's a Papilio stamp and i coloured it in with my Prismas and Sansodor using paper stumps to blend. Large purple flower also from Nikki (Bunny Zoe), smaller flower is Painterly Prima and Laura Ashley fabric brad in the centre, button and jewels from stash. Hope you like.......
