More Pretty Butterfly Greetings!

Spring is here!


 I love the idea that Spring is here and along with it comes all
the gorgeous colors, textures, and terrific challenges!


I used some K & Company paper that I'd had for ages along with their chipboard butterfly.  The birds on the print just cried out for the jute and raffia border! I mounted it all on a kraft background and added the pretty, little Prima flowers to top it off! 
The sentiment is from JustRite's, "All Occasion Sentiments" set. I love that font!

For some reason, when I cropped and tried to soften the edges of my card, it picked up the pattern of the paper on the card! I still haven't figured out Adobe Photoshop CS5....ugh...
I liked my Elements much better!


 Challenges entered:
Shabby Tea Room (Lilac, Blue, Yellow, Kraft and a butterfly!)
     And the prize is a great collection of JustRite background stamps! 
     ohhh....be still my heart!
JustRite Stampers (Spring colors and a butterfly!)
Paper Sundaes (Spring blossoms!)
Sentemental Sundays (Spring/Easter)
The Ribbon Carousel (Raffia and jute)
