Going for pretty here

I'm ready for spring, so here is a very springy-looking card.  I used this inspiration photo from Sweet Pea Designs' Mix It Up Challenge #28. I also used my favorite color combo -- pink and a pale-ish green.
The green branch is from a Memory Box die, and the butterfly is a Sizzlet  in pink vellum. I free-hand pierced the butterfly trail and added a little piercing around the punched corner.

This card is for these challenges:
Sweet Pea Mix It Up #28 -- inspiration photo
Butterfly Challenges #72 -- color "fern" and piercing
Crafty Sentiments -- favorite combo (I took that to mean favorite color combo).
Simon Says Wednesday -- Fantastic florals
Simon Says Monday -- Favorite tool (love my Cuttlebug)
Happy Little Stampers Die Cut Challenge -- anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #270 -- anything goes


  1. Pink and pale green is perfect for spring. Love that vellum butterfly--so delicate.

  2. Most certainly looking spring like and I do so like your pierced trail for the butterfly and just around the corner punches. Thankyou for flutteringby my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. You definitely achieved "pretty," Sandy! In fact, this is beautiful! And way to elevate your design with the piercing!! Hugs, Darnell
