Our last visit was during the springtime last year and it made a change to have warm sunshine and to be able to walk around the beautiful gardens with no coats.
The approach to the house is magnificent....

How about this for stripes on your lawn?
My card today is inspired by those wonderful tall blooms of lupin. The stamp is Inkyliscious and I created the graded inking with Distress inks. The frame is Noor and the sentiment is Tim's. I found my lovely old MS butterfly punch and added some butterflies too. The background is embossed.
Butterfly challenge 2/3 A is for aperture and/or apricot I cut an oval aperture for my stamped image.
