Flowers, Butterflies and Sunshine . . .

 . . . it doesn't get much better than that!!!

Hello Dear Friends!
Vacation fun is over and now it's time to get back to crafting fun!
With all the beautiful spring time blossoms popping out everywhere here in NE Ohio, I just had to create with flowers & butterflies.  So, today I have a card to share using product from Crafty Secrets.  You really MUST check out all the beautiful images, ephemera, and papers available at AMAZING prices in the Crafty Secrets Crafty Vintage Girl Store.


 Today's card uses an image from the Digital Flowers Printable Sheet - DPS-11.  There are several beautiful images on this ONE printable sheet and over the next few weeks you will be seeing additional cards utilizing these floral images.

The background papers used are also from Crafty Secrets.  They are from the gorgeous, new Birds and Blooms Digital Paper Collection Kit - DPK-26.  OMG these are AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!!  The butterflies were also die cut from another sheet of this beautiful paper.  (Actually is a scrap left over from another card you will see later in the month.)


 I have used a variety of products for my floral embellishment ... details will be listed below my signature.
