Are you all ready for Spring? I sure am. It's been frigid the past few months. So, here is my little touch of Spring for you.
The inspiration for this card came from the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. It was just perfect to show off this pretty DP. The paper is from Close to my Heart and is called Bliss. It's one of those papers that you don't want to cover up with lots of layers so I kept it rather simple.
When I design a card, I usually look for papers with the colors from my focal point. But, for this one, I wanted to use the neutral colors to make the focal point image really pop. The Cup of Pansies is from Fred She Said and there are lots of different images with this set. It actually comes in the pre-colored version which I used and the Digi version. My pansies are cut out and layered three additional times for lots of dimension.
The Butterfly is from a new release called Ornate Butterfly. This comes as a Digi, which I used and as a cutting file for your cutting machines. Your digi sheet to cut yourself comes with the butterfly in all different sizes. For mine, I used two different sizes and then colored them with my Copic Markers to match the colors in the Pansies.
The Hand Stitching was done with Matching Embroidery Floss and the pansie border is a MS edge punch.
