Flowers & Butterflies

I've been in the process of working on collection of cards for Spring (including Mother's Day).  It seems that I have chosen to do a lot of cards with flowers and butterflies for my collection.  I guess when I hear the word Springtime...that's what I think of.

Spring is Time for Flowers & Butterflies

Anyway...I got the inspiration for this card from the Card Positioning System's #210 Card Sketch Challenge.

The flower and two butterflies were created using vellum paper and hand punches.  There are several layers to the flower and butterflies to give them some dimension.  

I have this great pad of designer paper from Penny Lane.  All the paper is glittered and embossed.  I love it a lot and have found myself using it quite a bit this past month.

My favorite part of the card are the butterflies.  They actually look like they are flying.  

Challenges entered:
Card Positioning System's -  #210 Card Sketch Challenge.
Aly's Sunday Challenge - ASC38 Happy Spring
Wags n Whiskers Stamps -  Challenge 50 - Spring


  1. Very pretty card! The butterflies are my favorite part too!

  2. Such a pretty card - I love all the textures and colours.

  3. I did this CPS210 challenge too; however, I think your choice of papers really makes a statement that I couldn't come up with. Nice job.

  4. real fun - love the buttons.
