Dandelion Dream

It's a lovely sunny day today so I want to share a card that reminds me of being a kid; just sitting in the grass blowing dandelion clocks and watching the fairies fly away. 
I have used the beautiful 'Dandelion Dream' from Ching-Chou Kuik for this Z-fold Kraft card.  I don't often make this style of card, but I recently got a butterfly edge die and wanted to try something different.

  11. Nicola, what a stunning card you have made here which fits perfectly the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month of “Butterflies”. Even more FANTASTIC is that you have used one of Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps. The lace on the front of the card really sets of the card.
