Joan's Challenge #9 and Tag Challenge

Hello Everyone!

The challenge this week at Joan's Gardens is to 
* use the colors orange & blue
* use a spring theme
* use a die cut
* use a circle

Here is my card and I have used a digi image created by Tracy over at Sugar Creek Hollow for my focus image.

Spellbinder Nestabilities Lacy Circles & Beaded Circles were used for the backing on my butterfly and Prismacolor markers were used for the coloring.  Crystal Effects was used on the butterfly and the Martha Stewart fence border punch was used on the bottom panel.

Please stop over at Joan's Garden Blog and check out the challenge fun as well as all the amazing products she has for sale in her store.

Oooppps ... nearly forgot to share with you the tag I made for Joan's Tuesday Tag Challenge.   Every Tuesday you can make & share your tag over on Joan's Gardens ... there's no 'prize' but there is 'VOTING' and your tag might be voted the BEST IN SHOW for that week.  AND ... you'll have all these beautiful tags ready for those special occasion packages.

Hello, my friend!
Love that bright butterfly on your card! It almost flies right off the paper.
Great bright colors on your tag, and that springy image is so pretty.
Wish we could take some of that rain off your hands! Dry as a dessert here; we sure could use some wetness. You can keep the snow though. We're already hitting mid to upper 70's.
Send us rain! :)
