Two Piece Swallowtail

Another quick post today as it's chaos here at the minute with Mum in hospital, and there's not enough hours in the day.

This card is for two challenges

The colours are from ColourQ and

the sketch from Paper Players     

Here it is

Supplies :
Card = Naturals White, Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder, Blue card and White base FMS
Stamps = Swallowtail and Verve
Inks = Midnight Muse
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Fan EF, Martha Stewart Punch, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = 3D pads

Mum's Op went well so hopefully she'll be home soon, and then the nursing will really start!......she cant do anything for at least six weeks, and then she is only allowed to lift a kettle that has enough water in it for one mug of tea!!! Oh well, I can repay her for looking after me for the last 46 years!

I hope to be back soon, although I'm suffering with a terrible cold and cough at the moment, and at night the cough is at its worst when I lie down, so it is the only time I can craft.
