FMS Challenge #25

It is time for another great sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  It seems I am surrounded by Spring themed cards in blog land, so decided to bring a little Spring to my craft room as well.  Spring is a few months away here in Wyoming…. but the thought is always nice!  Here is the original sketch design, so that you can play along-

All supplies are by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

X7149B Lucy Paper Packet

1388 Colonial White Cardstock

A1124 A Tree

Z2153 Sweet Leaf Ink

Z2118 Desert Sand Ink

Z2152 Sunny Yellow Ink

Z2352 Sunny Yellow Marker

Retired Sweet Leaf Ribbon

Spica Pen by Copic

This sweet little butterfly comes with the A Tree stamp set.  I stamped in Sunny Yellow, added sparkle with my Spica Pen and then cut out. 

The banners were hand cut.


I have entered this card in the Spring Themed Challenge at The Paper Players.


The Things with Wings Challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ and the Green and Yellow Challenge at Crafting For All Seasons.

Thanks for stopping by!
