The Stash Raid Continues

Hi Folks
Don't know about you but I have felt a little cold today.  The sun decided to put in a short appearance this morning but this afternoon has been very overcast and grey.  Obviously getting ready for the Easter bank holiday weekend lol.

As I have mentioned before I am trying to use up some old stash in my crafty room.  Today's card was made using a Hunkydory free kit that came with a crafting magazine - possibly Cardmaking and Papercraft - many weeks and months ago.

I decided to go for an easel card design.  The decoupage image and papers are all from the kit.  I added my own sentiment, some pearl flourishes and 3d butterfly stickers.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I am now off work until Tuesday so hoping to get some crafting in.  I have been asked to do some wedding invitation samples for a possible order.  The customer concerned would like a square pocketfold invite.  Never done one of these before so need to do some research.  Wish me luck.
