Spring is Near

I hope spring is near.  However, this is March and in Colorado March typically is the
snowiest ( is that a word?) month of the year! We've seen some snow here in the Denver
metro area this month but not too much as of yet.  When I saw this weeks challenge
over at Just Us Girls it had me longing for spring. It's a color challenge and I thought
of daffodils when I saw the combination.

This is one of those cards that I actually started yesterday but got a little frustrated and
decided to let it sit overnight before coming back to it.  So, I'm fairly pleased with the
final result, at least, more so than yesterday.  The image was a free digital stamp from I printed it twice, colored it with gels pens and smooch ink, cut it out
and popped with some foam tape. The label I attached it to is a Lifestyle Crafts die and
the butterfly was punched with a Fiskars punch. The border punch I used is also from
Fiskars. The embossed panel was done with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I finished with
some pearls which is not unusual for me. I love pearls! Thanks for taking a look!
