Hello blogging friends.  We have warmed up a bit and all the little critters and birds
are out and about more  now.  We had a BIG bunny sitting by our car in the
driveway when I went out yesterday, probably a Mama about to have babies.
Seems we have one every year in the Spring.  Drives the dog nuts!

Today's card also has a touch of Spring......

Stamps - Flowers-Laurel Burch-Stampendous (LBCRS05)
Imagine Butterflies - Laurel Burch-Stampendous (LBCRS08)
Sentiment - Brushed Wishes-Stampendous (SSC1272)
I stamped the butterflies and flowers twice.  Colored one of
each up, then cut out and colored the first layer of the butterflies wings
again and popped it up over the original to give it movement.
Did the same for the flower center.
Woodgrain designer paper from my stash
Black Stickles on the butterflies top layer.
Yellow stickles on the tiny butterflies top layer
Orange Stickles on the center of the flowers
White card base is 6x6 inches
Colored with Copic Markers

Second card
Different Butterflies same set of stamps.

Stamps - Imagine Butterflies -Laurel Burch-Stampendous (LBCRS08)
Sentiment included in the set.
Flower- Fresh Bloom, Stampendous-(Q130)
White Liquid Pearls on the flowers
Light blue dye ink
Finished card base is 51/2x51/2 inches square
Colored with Copic Markers
I used low tack tape to mark off the square on the front of
the card.  I then inked a portion of the square and stamped
the flowers.  Removed the tape, colored the flowers,
then added the finished butterflies to the card. Stamped
the sentiment to finish.

These butterflies are so very pretty, see myself using them on
cards often.

I'm going to play in the Butterfly Challenge just for fun.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until next time.
