Hello Spring

Maybe that's wishful thinking, considering that it's really cold here in Alabama right now and I know it's a lot colder up north.  But I still have a springy card to share today.

The butterfly Thinlits were on backorder when I ordered them a while back, so I only just got them yesterday and I had to break 'em out immediately to make a card.  Since this die is so intricate, I ran it through the Big Shot with a piece of waxed paper in between the die and the cardstock--worked like a champ!

My springy color combo is courtesy of The Color Throwdown:

I used Pistachio Pudding, Garden Green, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Whisper White.  I think maybe the Cantaloupe is a bit pinker than the color swatch, but it was what stuck in my brain when I looked at the challenge.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:

This card came together in no time flat, but I think it still looks pretty good :)  Gotta love those butterfly Thinlits!

Thanks for stopping by.  Cheers, peeps!
