Spring Butterfly

We don't have spring just yet, and very few butterflies......but these colors just remind me of spring and I know it's going to be here soon.  Then it's going to be summer, and HOT, HOT, HOT!  Oh well......



I used some DP from the Basic Grey Porcelain paper pack and Pretty in Pink card stock from SU.  The butterfly and background for it were done with Flores Suaves, also from SU. 

I'll enter this in the challenges at All Sorts (Things with wings) and Basic Grey (Favorite things - I love butterflies and this stamp set.  Even though I'm not much of a frilly type person, I love this DP!  The colors in it are just beautiful.)  I'll also enter this in the challenge at Shopping Our Stash (birthday - The DP I used is a couple of years old and the butterfly is from a SU set).

Very pretty, and it does indeed say 'Spring'. So soft in pinks-grayed greens. Love your papers layout too.Was the butterfly colored or fussy cut from paper? So pretty, and I like how you added the dimension with the 2nd butterfly. TFS
