This is the last month for many of these fun items, I used a bug stamp set i fell in love with last time around this time of year.

I have already seen some beautiful projects with the new paper. Stunning i will tell you, we have the most creative consultants out there.

On to the card, this card is a A2 size and I used the sketch from the Make it from your heart Vol.2.
    I am very much in the spring mood, it has snowed where I am a lot, in fact I believe this is the most snow we have had for more then 10 years. Crazy! Lets move on...
    On the base of the card I did a second generation stamping with cute as a bug, I stamped the super cute butterfly with black ink and quickly added some glitz gel in sliver to the wings and I had left over sparkles from the For Always card WOTG and it the needed a little contrasting color. Did you read the sentiment? I am an avid gardener and I love watching the little bugs roaming around, when you see a butterfly stopping in for a really can't help but be a little more happy. Ok too much Down below you can find the recipe and a closer shot of the embellished butterfly.
