Happy Friday!
Have you been enjoying the first few days of Spring? We've been having a back and forth kind of weather. One day kind of warm, the next day much cooler and very windy. The dogwoods and azaleas are starting to bloom as well as cherry and crab apple trees. So pretty!

For my card, I thought I'd use some spring colors and add a few butterflies. I did a tutorial last week on the Delft Tile background I used for my background. The sentiment was stamped on vellum and the first time I used the Kpad but didn't think it was dark enough. So I lined up my SAMJ (stamp-a-ma-jig) and stamped it on top with the indigo ink. The little pennant banner was created with a small triangle punch and the left over parts from a lattice border punch. I used a few more of the triangle punches to help attach the vellum to the background. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
