Gifts of Spring

Today’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge is super cute. It is also combined with an Inspiration Challenge – butterfly cupcakes! Instead of using a cupcake as my main image, I was blown away by the beautiful butterflies, so went with that as my focal point. It’s been awhile since I used this lovely butterfly from Savvy Stamps. I inked it with Dew Drops in the following colors: Sea Breeze, Pearlescent Sky Blue and Night Sky. I cut it out and layered it with nesties (light blue and light green). The card base is Papertrey Ink white and I layered some Pretty in Pink and the patterned paper is Euphoria by Basic Grey. I tied some wide light blue gingham ribbon around the card and adhered it with a light blue button fastened with white embroidery floss. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s Mailbox Greetings set. Thanks for having a look today!
