Virginia's View Challenge #2

Hi there!

I wanted to sit down and make something pretty and spring-like, after getting 8 inches of SNOW last night! Yikes - will it ever end? You can check out a photo I took this morning here.  There is some good news though - we're suppose to get past 60 degrees by next week - you have no idea how awesome that's going to feel!

So, after seeing that Virginia's View Challenge #2 was to use stencils, I pulled out a memory box one that I have never used. It's called, Butterfly Vine and it's so pretty! I used it with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, then added a bit of Mint ink from Simon Says Stamp.

I also used two Memory Box Butterfly Dies - the Darla Butterfly, which was cut with vellum, and the Vivienne Butterfly, which was cut with white cardstock and shaded in with Copics to match my design. I had to add a bit of shimmer with my Wink of Stella Clear Pen. I love how these butterfly dies were made to go with the stencil! The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set called Flower Friend.

I'm hoping my Hello Spring card keeps the snow away for a very long time!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have an awesome weekend! ♥
