Butterflies....make me think of spring!

Hey there! It's been a gorgeous couple of days here. Sunny and warm! I'm loving it. What I'm really loving the most though, is hearing the song birds. I walk the dog every morning...VERY early...and it's been so quiet all winter. Now, the birds are just singing away. I didn't realize how much I've missed them, until I heard them start up again. It's so nice to know that spring is definitely here.

With that in mind, I created a card based on butterflies. I saw this new Prima paper, and feel immediately in love with it. Butterflies everywhere. So I used it as my main patterned paper and built my card around it. I punched out some other butterflies using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I pressed them into my glue pad and then sprinkled them with glitter. I used glue dots to secure them to the card, and bent the bodies so that they would be more 3D.

I also cut out one of the butterflies from the Prima paper and popped it up on the centre of the card.

I hope you like it! I also hope you are having beautiful weather too, in your neck of the woods.
