Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends. I have a little card to share today. This is for the JustRite Stampers' challenge to make a card celebrating Spring and tell what Spring means to you. When I think of Spring I think of blue skies, fresh green leaves, and brightly colored flowers. So, I picked a blue green color and a red. The colors felt a little vintage-y to me so I played that up a bit. I used the beautiful Resplendent Rectangles dies and also Labels Four and Wonderful Wings dies from Spellbinders. I did very little stamping on this card... just the sentiment and the label. The label was colored with Copics. I glittered up the butterfly with Crystal Snow from Stampendous and embossed one of my layers with the Petals-a-Plenty folder from Stampin' Up! I used ALOT of Chamomile ink from PTI to distress everything, added some twine, a button, and some pearls to finish it off. This is a little outside my "normal" for cards but I really wanted to play around with these gorgeous dies that I recently purchased. I really do think Resplendent Rectangles is my new favorite.....have I said that before? Lol....I believe I have! Anyways, hope you have a great rest of the day (or evening) and I'll be checking in soon!

Katie, we must have been on the wave length this week. This card is just lovely. Everything came together so beautifully. I love the blue color of your ribbon (which I might add is gorgeous), and the darling butterfly too. And, the MME - perfect color for the frame. The layers look awesome. Don't you just love these new dies!?
