Happy Spring Card

I am entering this card in two challenges.

Always Crafting - Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This is color challenge, using a picture that is posted on the website for inspiration.

Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge #47 Weather Forecast
Make a project featuring your favorite seasonal weather (Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter).


I cut an 8.5" X 11" of vanilla cardstock in half. Then folded that in half to make the card.

I cut a light green piece of Core'dinations to 5.25" X 4".  I used the cuddle bug to emboss it, then sanded it lightly to bring out the core color.

The butterfly was cut at 2.5" from the Picturesque cartridge. I sent both pieces through my Xyron then glittered them with Martha Stewart fine glitter.

I added some Prima flowers and a bit of ribbon.

The "Happy Spring" stamp is from My Pink Stamper. I used Stampin' Up Early Expresso ink.


  1. Hello Pholly. Your card is very pretty. I love the way you glittered up the butterfly. I can't wait to spring, and your card put me all the more in the mood for it to get here FAST. We have had a very rough winter here in NY. Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday this week.
