Spring

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Another beautiful morning here, off out to visit my friend shortly and then doing a few errands too.  I hope you all have a lovely day and that the sun is shining for you too!

Today's card is what I made for yesterday's One Word Wonder challenge over on Facebook, Mad Crafter's Giggle group.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 white scalloped and embossed front card
2. First layer is card from my stash which I have distressed with Dusty Concord the edges.
3. The topper I have brayered Sparkle Medium Royal Purple then distressed with above DI, I then stamped the crocus and sentiment from Sheena Douglass A little Bit Sketchy Range - Spring with Versafine Imperial Purple and embossed with clear embossing powder, I then coloured the flowers with my Spectrum Noirs.
4. I wrapped ribbon around and added 3 little blossom flowers from Sweet Lilac and added gems to the Centre.
5. To finish off I cut out the butterfly using white centura pearl card.


Thank you for stopping by Today

Ooo, what a marvelous butterfly, Linda! Of course, I love the purple in the ribbon, the flowers, and the image, but it's the butterfly that makes my heart flutter on this one. :-D Who makes that butterfly die or is that a Cricut cut?
