Butterflies and flowers....

back in my comfort zone lol.

Good morning, hope you are all well today, and this horrid weather isn't causing you all too many problems. A slight cheer went up in my house this week when I braved taking the car out in the snow and ice ;-) and made it back it one piece lol. I am very brave - ROFL. I know everyone else just gets on with it, but I'm a complete wimp about snow and ice. I never used to be, but after a VERY minor accident a few years ago, I just don't like it anymore, so I wish it would all just go away now, and spring would hurry up and get here!

That's what today's card is about. Wishing spring here with flowers and a butterfly lol.

 I started with some Docrafts Papermania paper from the Linen Capsule collection, and punched out a butterfly. I then punched the butterfly again from Kraft card to layer them. I backed the paper with Kraft card and after inking all the edges I mounted this on to a cream 5x5 card blank.

Then I added some of the little wooden flowers that I picked up in The Range and inked the edges of those too.

I faffed for a bit and finally ended up with three in a row lol. I used scraps of Kraft card for the stems. I stamped a greeting on to Kraft card with a cocoa Memento ink pad and added this with foam pads to the top.

I finished the card with some Cosmic Shimmer dark bronze PVA glue dots on the butterfly and flowers.

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by, see you all soon.
