On the Wings of Spring...

I don't know of anything that carries the whispers of springtime better than a butterfly. The colors, their graceful flight....and you start to see them as springtime is fully here, and is winging it's way toward summer. Beautiful!

And this inspiration:

Leads me to this card:

It's a card for an embossing post on Practical Scrappers....and also for
the inspiration site....Moxie Fab's their "Tuesday Trigger"
challenge....find it HERE and you can play too!

The soft look of the butterflies was done using a Tim Holtz embossing folder,
inked with Spun Sugar and Ripe Persimmon, and then run thru the cuttlebug.
I used the indented look (reverse embossed image) on the card.....I love
the way it looks like butterflies done in water colors in soft pastels....
just like the inspiration pic!

  1. This is another winner Laura. With a change of sentiment would be a good Mother's day card too.
