New Life

That is what spring and butterflies make me think of. The buds are on the trees and plants, the birds are chirping, softball season is starting, soon our yard will be full of butterflies! I LOVE SPRING!

This card used a variety of techniques. Cuttlebug embossing: swiss dots and victorian. Stamped the butterfly (Inkadinkado) then cut out. Applied new doodlebug felting in yellow to the wings- hard stuff to work with!!! Also applied prisma glitter to the white on the b'fly. Popped dotted with 3D foam. Satin ribbon, waxy flax and button finish off the bow. Stamped sentiment from Sassy Stamps.

Challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers #17: spring into spring
Design Dollies: black, white and yellow
The cuttlebug Spot: if you had wings
Our Daily Bread: #6 think spring and new life
Totally stampalicious: ribbons and polka dots
