A Cart Full Of Sunshine

Happy Saturday to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope everyone is well and  looking forward to the weekend. Today I'm sharing another of the Easter cards I made last weekend I've used the lovely stamp from the Lili of the Valley latest release A Cart Full Of Sunshine . There is a bit of a tale to this stamp I bought the rubber stamp at Harrogate and then thought it was faulty as my stamp didn't have the pretty little branch at the top that I was seeing on cards others had made. I contacted Lili of the Valley who explained the branch was only on the digi stamp and print images because of production methods with the rubber stamp. I then decided as I love d the cute branch to get the digi stamp as well and  this is what I used for my card. I apologise in advance for the photographs my camera hates green so the backing paper on this card is a much prettier green its from a Lili of the Valley Timeless Victorian pad.

Wonderful Easter card Carole! The branch does add something to the image so I'm not surprised you bought the digit one too. I have that paper so know exactly what a lovely colour it is, weird what colours cameras sometimes don't like. Love the flowers in the corner with the leaves. A card to really make you smile :).
