Awards and Birthday Card - We Scrap

I realised I hadn't posted this card that I made with the WeScrap March kit which has lots of MME Funday papers in it.  I did a wash of the background with the peacock colour by cosmic shimmer, I then die cut the doily using my spellbinders ironworks die, I punched a flower shape out of several papers and then stuck them back together, a Martha Steward butterfly and button - so really quick and easy.

Also...this is a thank you post for some fab awards you have given me of late :)  I have been really late in saying this so apologies.

So 1st up is the Leibster award (awardees please don't feel you have to take up the award as I know lots of people will probably have received it, but I just wanted to link you all and say I enjoy all that you blogs :D)

What is a Liebster Blog Award you ask?  Here are the details…
The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are unclear but "the word translates from German as "darling" or "beloved". It's given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to generate some traffic for them.
Here are the guidelines for the Liebster Blog Award
1. Acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2.Give this award to 5 other bloggers, who must have less than 200 followers, and let them know through a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog
4. Best of all- bask in the glory, have fun, and share the love!
