Spring is in the air!

Wow did I have fun doing this card!! I have to say that sometimes it's the paper that makes a card fantastic. I'm so happy with how this turned out. It is nothing like I thought it would be but I found this paper and had to use it. I wanted bright glittery colors too. The idea for the card came from Cricut Cardz Challenge. Their recipe was to make a Thank You card with yellow, blue and white, and to also use a border cut. I also put it in the Cards Cupid Blog Challenge and Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #7 which was to create a Spring Inspired Card. Hope you like it!

The background paper I used is from the Doodlin' Around stack. I used Stretch Your Imagination for the sunflowers and Create a Critter for the butterfly (both were cut at 1.25 inch). I used Gypsy Wanderings for my Thank You border cut (it was the only cartridge I have that has border options!). And then added some brown cording to finish it off. I just love it! It's so bright and springy! (too bad we've got sleet and freezing rain outside).
