 I am really in the mood to see spring flowers. This week the Bloggers Challenge is fab florals. Along with my flowers, I had to add some butterflies. Yes, spring can't come soon enough for me. For my background I used some wonderful kraft colored textured paper.  The butterfly border (Tim Holtz) is die cut from similar white textured paper and tinted using distress inks. The focal floral image is from SweetStamps. These were colored using the spray mist coloring technique from Technique Junkies (Try That Technique challenge). The sprays I used are from Radiant Rains. It's been quite a while since I pulled them out to play with. The sentiment is from Club Scrap.
My card is also being entered into these challenges: SweetStamps Designs -- spring flowers and Word Art Wednesday -- anything goes.
