The gorgeous stamp is by Stamping Bella, the lovely friendship sentiment is included. As this is a nice big stamp I made a centre stepper card using some pretty papers from My Minds Eye. The beautiful Spring Border is from Memory Box and the butterflies are by Impression Obsession.

Sorry about the rubbish photos, I blame the bad weather!
