Welcome Spring

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today from the Card A Day Blog.  This weeks theme is all about Spring cards.  What says spring more than the tulips coming up and butterflies. I am ready to see the snow gone and some green buds popping up!

For my card I'm using some of my March Counterfeit kit. I started with the tulip stamp by measuring my stamp and cutting my piece of cardstock down to size.  I then stamped the image and trimmed it down a little bit more. I punched a lighter shade of green from the Summer Dreams stack and added it to the bottom with a piece of ribbon on top. My stamped image is up on pop up dots to add a little bit more dimension. 

The butterfly was punched and in my baggie of pre-punched items to add to cards and layouts, so I have no idea where the paper is from.  I embossed the butterflies with the polka dots folder to add some more dimension and added a couple of rhinestones to the center.

Thanks for stopping by.
