Hello! It is 1st of April, so it means it’s time for another Sparkle & Shine Challenge.

Today we are going all spring! All the participants will be creating a card that is inspired by the photo below:

Spring colors are bright and fun, so I wanted to create a card that show off the colors well.

This card is my take on today’s challenge. I thought butterflies would reflect spring and the colors very well, and I wanted to keep it simple and clean at the same time.

I used Painted Butterflies stamp set from Altenew as a main supply for today’s card. This is an awesome set where you can do 2-3 step stamping depending on how you want the images to show. So I took few colors of ink pads that has spring color palette and also used MISTI tool to stamp the images.

I love that the stamp set also comes with few sentiments that fit multiple occasions. I stamped the sentiment on a 1/2″ tall white cardstock with blue ink pad and placed it between two butterflies. I think offsetting some elements bring fun interest to the project.

I also added couple sequins from Pretty Pink Posh between the butterflies along with the sentiment. I used the Spring Mix Sequins pack and chose couple colors from it. To assemble the card, I used Sea Glass Cardstock to match the blue color from the sentiment.
