Happy Spring!

I made this card in January, but didn't get to post it.  Since today is officially spring I thought it was appropriate.  While helping my mother-in-law decorate her new snowbird home I picked up some adorable K&Company butterfly stickers to use for cards while in the south - apparently people don't hand write much more than Thank You notes any more because that was the only type of stationery around!  I found the stickers (without glitter!) at the local Michaels.

 I paired one of the larger butterflies with design paper from the DCWV wintercombo matstack. 


Look closely and you'll notice that the flowers in the design paper are actually snowflakes.  I paired it up with some handmade fiber paper (no I didn't hand make it), and a scrap of gray cardstock.  This was so quick and easy!  Hopefully I can find design papers to match all the butterflies and whip up a few cards for my stash.  (Note:  these butterfly stickers are a little bulky, so mailing them may cost extra postage.  Since I didn't have a post office close by, I stuck two stamps on the envelopes just to be on the safe side.)

Thanks for Visiting!

I love butterflies and I like how you combined the different papers with the butterfly. It really makes it stand out. You also have a really nice blog :)
