Hi Dreamers!
Happy Friday.  Always a reason to celebrate.  What's up for your weekend?  My husband's band has a concert on Sunday.  Probably try to get some yard work done today and tomorrow.

I am continuing with my Lily Flourish  series of cards today.   There are two more cards in the series and I will share both of them today.  See the other Card here.    All stamps are from Lost Coast Designs.

The first card features the Lily Flourish used as a background stamp with a Lovely butterfly.

Stamps: Lily Flourish, Butterfly Face, Dragonfly Border all from Lost Coast Designs

The Lily Flourish is used at the focal point on the second card.
