Just for fun

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. 
Welcome to my little bit of blogland!
Today I would like to share with you a card that I have created using a background I  made during a "craftalong" The amazing Louise Withers was on Hochanda demoing an awesome range of craft supplies from Ecoline and Amsterdam with a few other fabby goodies too . Please see links below.
I used a selection of paints from the Junk and Disorderly range from Indigoblu and I hope that you like it! 
There is an amazing group over on FB called the Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art 
Pop over and take a look there's a weekly challenge and loads of inspiration. 


Here's how it came together! 
The base is a 7x7 card blank with a slightly smaller square of black card. Next I cut a smaller square from an A4 piece of card that I had created the background on. 
I made the topper using the same background and stamped the sentiment. Both the sentiment and butterfly stamp are both from Indigoblu.
To finish the piece I have popped card candi in the corners.
