PPA84, Paper Players Challenge #37 & CTD 132

What a busy week I've had and then all of a sudden, I had a found afternoon today ~ so ~ I quickly found the challenges that I was hoping to play with and had myself some fun! I really am hungering for spring and the Paper Players Challenge #37  & PPA84 were just TOO perfect ~ I can almost smell the roses! The subtle colors at the Color Throwdown #132 just screams spring to me...and so away I went! 

I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but sometimes what I see in my head isn't quite right and I end up changing everything about what I had originally planned on was a different story ~ this is pretty much exactly what I dreamed up ~ that is exciting for me and a first! So here's my spring card...

I've got Shimmer Mist on the butterflies as well as the flowers ~ but, it's really had to see in the photos

I had to place my clear block onto my card in order to hold it down ~ here's a little side shot ~

and the inside of my card ~ I'm really pleased with my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day and
enjoy your weekend ~ tomorrow's Friday ~ yippee!!!!

  4. I agree - very elegant and very creative. Love what you've done with the Top Note. I can imagine what how that shimmer looks IRL. As soon as I saw these challenge colours yesterday when I was browsing, I wondered if you'd be creating something. These colours are beautiful and I sure am hoping I can find some time to try them out too.
