Paper Lane

Good afternoon all, i hope you are having a great day and a Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating Easter today.  Go on, tell me, how many of you have had chocolate easter eggs for breakfast today? :)

Today is exciting for me because my first project for Paper Lane  has been published! I was given these gorgeous papers which are from the American Crafts' Garden Cafe Collection and this is what i came up with.  The papers are double sided and fabulous quality.  The paper i used is called 'Rose's kitchen' and i used both sides of it.  The butterfly is a Hero Arts stamp which i coloured with distress inks and copics. The border and the corners were made using EK Success punches.  The sentiment is from the 'Better Poppies' stamp set from Paper and Such. I love this sentiment.
