Things with wings ...

Today is the first day of a 'Blog Hop and Linky Party' over at STAMPlorations ... and I'm lucky enough to be joining in!  Why not pop over and check it out - there are prizes to be won as well as an opportunity to visit lots of blogs and view some amazing creations.  We are celebrating Spring ... with wings!

I'm hoping that my card will inspire you to join in with the fun!

I created a patterned piece of card before using it to die cut the butterfly and sentiment.  Isn't that a beautiful butterfly die ... it is part of the new release from STAMPlorations and there is a matching solid butterfly die which you can just see peeking out from underneath.  I love created patterned card to use for die cuts it just seems to add the right amount of colour but with extra interest that you just don't get from a flat colour.  I also white heat embossed the base card with some solid butterfly images - not very easy to see in the photograph but it just adds a bit of interest.

I used:
CUTplorations - Flutter Zen 1 Layering dies,  Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Dies,
Sweet Spring Wishes Die
STAMPlorations - Mixed Media Grunge, Mixed Media Elements and Trendy Butterflies
Distress Inks - Tumbled Grass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch


Pop along and join in the fun!
