Another gloomy, snowy day in the U.P. But spring is in the air even tho temps are supposed to be falling again today. I heard a cardinal whistling yesterday-a sure sign of spring. Haven't seen a robin yet, but they should appear any day now. Lots of heavy, wet snow overnight, but I must say it is very pretty.-and good snowman snow!
So, on to today's card. I used the sketch from this week's 'Hand Stamped Sentiments #154' Sketch. I will also enter this in the 'Flutterby Wednesday #230', anything goes with butterfly or fairy;
The image on this card is another one I colored up some time ago. It's from S.U. Sea Side Sketches. It was stamped on some shimmery cardstock with Black Staz-on ink and colored with Prisma Colored Pencils. I cut it out with S.U. Labels Framlits. For the mat I traced around the die and hand cut for a smaller border around the image. Initially I had tried a border with Martha Stewart Pop Up Butterfly punch, but that didn't work out, but I had all these pretty little butterflies, so I used them on the image panel-doubling a couple of them for added dimension. The sentiment (CTMH Say it in Style) is stamped with Versa-mark and heat embossed with S.U. White embossing powder.
