Thinking Spring!!! :)

Hi everyone! How is your weekend going so far? Today I was in the mood to share a card that "shouts spring"!! Need that right now and I love the butterfly look lately. The embossed back ground is chalked, the sentiment is from Verve, which I die cut from my circle Nesties, and added a couple butterflies with silver 1/2 pearls. I like the ribbon treatment... very easy and not bulky to mail!
I'm catching up on blogging now, and hope to finish a bit more tonight. The sun is shinning and the temps are warmer, but not far above freezing... LOL! Enjoy your Sunday and crafting time... I hope to do that to! Thanks for taking the time to stop in...

SMILES!

Michelle :)

This is SO pretty how you chalked the embossed flowers. The ribbon is nice too. I don't use it much because of the bulk (hence, extra postage) but this is a good alternative.

This is beautiful Michelle. I love the softly coloured flowers and flourishes against the stronger colours. I always tend to use my circles in the middle of the card, great idea having them at the side. Keep up the great work. Your card does shout spring! I know what you mean about posting, that can be quite a challenge with the 3d cards we make these days!!

Gosh, girl, I'd better get back to work. Such a nice pause in my day to visit you and see all your amazing works of art. You never disappoint.

Love and hugs again, and lots of smiles across the miles
