Cuttin' and Stampin' 14-7 Hello Spring challenge

Good morning and welcome the the Cuttin' and Stampin' Tuesday card Challenge. Today I am posting  on the Green Team, and we are creating cards for Spring.  Boy oh boy am I ready for spring!!!  We are having a winter of all winters...Lots of Snow..UGH.   So making a Spring card is a pleasure.  I am using a Paper Smooches stamp set called..Flap Happy.

It is fun little butterflies and cute lil bugs..another element of Spring besides flowers..

And 6x6 papers and stickers from Crate Paper.. Maggie Holmes'

For the card I took a scrap piece from the Crate psper that was all flowers and fussy cut around, so I could make like a bush of flowers outside a window, and then added the butterflies and bugs...

I also added some Liquid glass from Close To My Heart to the beetles to give them a shine to them..

as well as the flower centers shown above..

For the butterflies..I stamped them and fussy cut them out and added a little bling form my well as some ribbon and some stickers from the Crate paper collection and lastly stamped "Enjoy the day" from the Flap Happy collection.

I hope you enjoyed the project for today and that you will take part in the Hello Spring Challenge!! head here
