Glitter n Sparkle DT - Include a Butterfly

Hello, everyone!  It's Sunday, so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week we would like you to Include a Butterfly.  I chose an adorable kitty from one of our generous sponsors, Fitztown, called Cutie 3. I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape.


I made a fun little spring scene. First I created the cloudy sky by sponging Distress Ink using a cloud template (printed from Netty's Cards - thank you!).  I usually use Tumbled Glass but this time I chose Broken China for a change. I added a fun sentiment from Scribbles Designs called It's Meow or Never.  I love kitty puns! Thank you, Sandy! I also added "Come on Spring" in tiny alphabet stickers.  We still have a lot of snow on the ground here and I can't wait for spring weather to arrive!

The scene was created using a number of dies.  This is a great way to use up leftover snippets of cardstock.  Here are the dies used: Lawn Fawn Stitched Showers and Stitched Hillside Borders, Impression Obsession Small Grass Border and Tiny flowers, MFT Die-Namics Picket Fence, and Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies. I added tiny gems to the flowers and butterflies.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Include a Butterfly challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!

Blogger is an a-hole, ate my comment which was that your spronged sky is great, this card is cute, and the greeting is too neat.

This is so fun! I love the scene and the play on words for the sentiment. Thank you for joining our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. The current challenge is midway and hope you join us again. Leaving you with God's Word to ponder on from Romans 15:4 and it says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." God bless always!
