Bloggers Challenge ~ Think Spring

I knew that the bloggers challenge would be spring, and made this card as my swap for my team's monthly meeting. I'm really happy with this card even though it only took me about 20 minutes to make 12 of them! I started with my favorite background, the polka dot pattern on cameo coral paper.


I added a few random pieces of paper from the new dsp coming out in the mini catalog (starting april 1st). I stamped a butterfly, and put the top two layers on crooked ~ on purpose. I punched a hole with the slot punch and tied some ribbon on. I sponged the edges in cameo coral ink and my favorite part of this stamp set is the sentiment. You're a friend who makes good times great.


Sometimes, less is more and I'm really loving this card and my new goodies from the mini!


If you have a moment, please check out what the other blogger's challenge ladies are doing with the "think spring" theme.
