This is my second project as APRIL Guest Member for Quixotic Paperie and I just love this stamp from Elisabeth Bell's Belles 'n Whistles range.  This one is called Ice Cream Butterfly
available here.

Halfway through making this card I decided to sort out one of my flat back pearl boxes.  I spent 3 hours+ sorting them into colours.  I've left the other boxes of pearls for another time - 3 hours was more than long enough to spend doing this!
