Spring Is Coming!

Hi Everyone!  I want to show you a Spring card I made recently with the new Spunky stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Spunky & Bug 523. Yes, Spring is around the corner even though it may not feel like it! We are gearing up for a snowstorm here! I am looking forward to Spring; how about you? I saw this layout awhile back and knew I had to use it for this card. I made the "flower" card by using a Spellbinders small circle die for the center and using a large circle punch for the "petals."

Here is a close up of the butterfly that I cut from patterned paper using a die.

I heat embossed the saying and ladybugs using Black embossing powder EP 170. Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft SS108 was used on Spunky's body.

I have enjoyed making cards using Spunky. He is such a cutie!  Be looking for another cute Spunky that will be revealed March 1st!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
