Bloggers Challenge Spring Flowers

I'm posting a little late today. I had my card mostly finished on Wednesday and had every intention of finishing yesterday until I was hit by a 24 hour flu bug. I'm sort of functioning today, so here is my card. Bloggers Challenge is Spring Flowers. I used a background stamp from Stamp Camp for my flowers and a butterfly die cut from Sizzix for my butterfly. The flowers were painted with Creative Inspirations paints. The butterfly was cut from A Tim Holtz paper and then embossed and painted over with fairy dust paint to give added shimmer. I tried to use spring colors -- pink and green to say spring. At least our weather today seems to be hinting that spring is on its way.
