Fluttering By

Hello friends!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!  (Don't forget to adjust your clocks for daylight savings time today if you are one of those that do this!)

Just a quick post today to share a card I made with some of my faves and to keep that Spring-like feeling going that I have right now! :)

I have used my new Lawn Fawn Flutter By stamp set and matching die set to complete this card.  I've also used some really pretty Spring-like papers that I just received from SU! SAB freebies!

So I took this gorgeous butterfly from the set and colored in portions of it with my Copic markers and then used some of the papers and paper-pieced the coral dotted parts of the butterfly.  I then used the matching die cut to cut it out and popped it up over the card.

The striped background was stamped with a flower from the set and then I took the end of an eraser and dotted the middle of them with Calypso Coral ink.  I cut out a portion of the papers to stamp my sentiment directly on the white card base.  The papers were popped up over the card base with foam tape.  I've also finished it up with some matching ribbon and some pearls under the butterfly.

Thanks so kindly for dropping by today!  Hope you've enjoyed my card!
