It must be April Fool's Day!!! It is snowing out and I keep seeing pictures of your yards that are in full bloom. I was really hoping for some sun today.
Today I created a card without any flowers. I used the beautiful Marianne Design butterfly (CR1205) for the main attraction. Two butterflies were die cut and layered. I sponged a darker purple down the center of the butterfly but I don't think it shows up well in the photo. The pretty doily under the butterfly is from the new Spellbinders "Moroccan Motifs" set. The corners are from the Spellbinders "Moroccan Accents" set. Along with other dies, you get two matching corners in this set. I love it when they include two matching corners in a set of dies. The design paper is from an old paper pack from Kaiser Craft called "Lilac Avenue Collection". I used small butterfly stamps from the JustRite "Botanical Dreams" stamp set on the design paper. The sentiment is also from this stamp set.
Well that was a quick and easy card. The butterfly will easily flatten down so it is easy to mail to someone - maybe someone who loves purple!
All the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
Hope you are having a nice warm day. I think I will go sit in front of the fireplace and read a book now.
