Spring Is Here...

Edited to Add: My Spring card won Top 3 at Paper Sundaes Challenge!

Hello my blogging friends! Time for another challenge over at IAMC. The theme is Spring. I love Spring! the weather is perfect, the gardens are so beautiful, little creatures flying everywhere... and to celebrate the season, I made this butterfly shaped card using my Party Tilda from the Princes & Princesses collection. 

I cut the base for my card with my Cricut Expressions (Elegant Edges cartridge). Using Design Studio Software, I welded two butterfly shapes from the top wings and cut them on white cardstock.

The pattern papers are My Mind's eye. I brushed some white crackle paint around the edges of the butterfly and around my image.

The tag was created with Magnolia doohickey die: "Bloomy Tag". I decorated it with this gorgeous Vintage Seam Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts and a little butterfly charm.

The beautiful flowers are also from Wild Orchid Crafts and I applied 2 layers of Pearl Glimmer mist for a "shimmery" look. The butterfly digital stamps are  Hero Arts. 


Miss Party Tilda was colored with Copic markers. Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000. Hair: E59, E57, E33 and E50. Dress: BG18, BG15, BG11 and BG000. Crown: Y26, Y23, Y21 and Y000. Shoes: E37, E35, E31 and E50. Shadows: W5, W3 and W1.
