Hello all you lovely people I have been organising my small collection of nesties and other dies with these fab magnetic sheets I bought  they keep the nesties so tidy. I think I might use them more often now as they are on show, I tend to forget I have things unless I can see them.

Anyway my card today uses a Tilda image I have  coloured with promarkers and put gold glitter on her wings, I think I might have overdone that a bit , my backing paper is Bearly Mine "Summer Light and Simply dots" I then added a doily, butterfly, ribbon and sentiment.I do hope you like it.xxx
