Sent with love

Hi guys, hope your all having a gorgeous Bank Holiday weekend, we have actually had a couple of days of sun!!!! yes I did say that, sun!!!, I'd forgotten what it looked like, lol
I was told to get some sun on my bones for the tablets I'm on, so it was on medical orders that I just had to sit outside didn't I ?????

Anyway enough jabber from me he he, I'm showing you a card I've made with an Old Letter Rose stamp 2 from Noor, designed by the  Jolanda,  I saw it on Facebook and just had to have it, wow  it's so adorable, I so love postage stamps and this combo is perfect, they do others too and the are gorgeous too,

I've used distress inks  re-inkers and distress ink markers for this one, I have made another in other colours too but that's for a DT card coming soon, so watch this this space lol,
I printed out two of the postcard stamps then layered them and thought the Tim Holtz antique pen nib went brill with it too,
the gorgeous lace is from Live and love crafts,
I frantaged the edges of the postcards and did the metal butterfly too,
Papers are from the Prima Romance Novel from the lovely Teresa at my crafty heart, though I can't find it now sorry, but do check out her other  products, which are gorgeous,
To finish off I've used a metal corner from live and love crafts too and a doily which I've distressed, a Tim Holtz film strip and some pearl strings plus flowers from my stash,

Not sure if it fits any challenges, but if you do know of any please give me a hint lol,
