Although the temps here are still pretty chilly, the snow
has melted a lot and you can actually see the grass, the dakrats (prairie dogs for the non-locals) are out, so spring must definitely be here! I was feeling in the mood for just that with this card. I got the new Beautiful Wings embosslit die for the Big Shot and knew I HAD to use it! Plus, I've been seeing lots of projects with the ribbon all crinkled up and wanted to try my hand at that, so this is what I came up with! I used Barely Banana, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. And my desk looks like spring! For the background I used one of my impressions templates, ran my brayer over it using Barely Banana, put it through the big shot and you get a very soft, lovely background! I am LOVING the butterflies - they are SO EASY and SO pretty, I can see myself using them quite a lot! My other favorite thing on this card is the new Well Scripted stamp set featured in the mini catalog. It is by far my favorite font verse set we have. The great thing about this card, too, is that it can be an Easter card (as I have shown) or birthday, Mother's day, you name it! I love versatile!

I hope you're enjoying your spring - wherever you are!

Did you know I said "dakrat" to a friend who wasn't military from GF and she had NO idea what I was talking about. I said, you know, the little prairie dogs that you have who wear scarves and carry Molotov Cocktails.

That didn't help explain it at all.

Side note: I'm still waiting on my butterfly embosslit to be sent. So jealous!
