Happy Spring


Today I have a card that celebrates spring with all of these bright colors and patterns. I started with a Penny Black image and matted it with yellow. The turquoise panel was embossed with a plaid ef, and I added a piece of yellow gingham ribbon. The card base is turquoise, and the plaid paper is by Lawn Fawn, while the butterflies were done with a retired SU! butterfly sizzlet and covered with Nuvo glitter glue.


as well as the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for April - Spring or Easter


Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
